Suicide attack on Kabul bus kills one, wounds 15: Officials

A Taliban suicide bomber struck a government bus in Kabul Monday, killing one civilian and wounding 15 others, officials said, as insurgent representatives hold talks with an Afghan delegation aimed at ending the country`s 13-year war.

The bus was carrying employees of the attorney general`s office to work in downtown Kabul when the attacker detonated his suicide vest, as the militants press on with their annual spring offensive.

The Afghan interior ministry “strongly condemned” the attack, confirming that one civilian was killed and 15 others were wounded.

“These attacks… demonstrate [an] extreme level of atrocity by terrorists against innocent and defenseless civilians,” the ministry said in a statement.
