Afghan Suicide Bomber Targets NATO Convoy

Afghan officials say a suicide car bomber has killed five civilians and wounded at least 15 people in the eastern province of Kapisa.

The attack took place at a marketplace in the Taqab district.

Police say the bomber targeted a convoy of NATO supply trucks but failed to hit them.

The attack instead crashed into a house, destroying its walls, and killing those inside.

A spokesman for the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force said no NATO troops were killed or injured in the attack.

Taliban have claimed responsibility for the bombing.
