喀布尔自杀爆炸,14人丧生 Suicide Bomber Kills 14 in Kabul

塔利班声称对喀布尔星期一清晨的自杀袭击负责。爆炸袭击对象是一辆小巴士,造成至少14人死亡,数人受伤。

警方说,爆炸手徒步接近这辆小巴,然后引爆炸弹。

阿富汗内政部说,遇难者都是尼泊尔安全警卫,受伤的有5个尼泊尔人和4个阿富汗人。

阿富汗首席执行官阿卜杜拉谴责这起暴力事件,称其为“恐怖和恐吓行径”。

塔利班还宣称对喀布尔星期一上午发生的路边炸弹袭击负责。一名省议员和他的两名警卫被炸伤。

北约谴责这起袭击,指出塔利班虽曾做出承诺,但这类可怕的袭击显示,他们完全漠视无辜平民的生命。

据报道,在阿富汗东北部巴达赫尚省,一名自杀爆炸手在一个市场将一辆装满炸药的摩托车引爆,炸死至少8人,炸伤40余人。

The Taliban has claimed responsibility for a suicide attack early Monday morning in Kabul, killing at least 14 people on a minibus and wounding several others.

Police say the bomber approached the bus on foot and set off explosives.

Afghanistan's Interior Ministry says those killed were Nepalese security guards. Five other Nepalese nationals were wounded along with four Afghans.

Afghanistan's Chief Executive Abdullah Abdullah has condemned the violence as an "act of terror and intimidation."

The Taliban has also now claimed responsibility for a roadside bomb in Kabul Monday morning in which a provincial council member was wounded along with his two bodyguards.

NATO has condemned the attacks, saying "Horrific attacks like these show that, despite the Taliban's promises, they have a complete disregard for the lives of innocent civilians."

Elsewhere in Afghanistan, there are reports a suicide bomber riding an explosives-packed motorbike has blown himself up in a busy marketplace in northeastern Badakhshan province, killing at least eight people and wounding more than 40 others.
