Suicide car bombing kills 4 in Afghan capital

KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) -- Afghan security officials say a suicide car bombing in the capital, Kabul, has killed at least four people and wounded seven.

Mohammad Wali, a police officer, says the Wednesday afternoon bombing was targeting a local police station, adding that the dead and injured were all civilians.

But Sediq Sediqqi, a spokesman for the Interior Ministry, says it is still unclear if the bomber was in fact targeting the police station. Kabul's Murad Khani district, where the bombing took place, is full of potential targets -- including the Finance Ministry, Defense Ministry, the presidential palace and a major religious shrine.
