#AceWorldNews – AFGHANISTAN (Kabul) – July 02 – A suicide bomber targeted a bus carrying Afghan military personnel in the capital Kabul on Wednesday morning, killing eight air force officers and wounding five, Hashmat Stanekzai, a spokesman for Kabul’s police chief told Reuters.
The explosion happened in the heavily secured down-town area near Kabul University.
Heavy fighting is still under-way in the strategically important Sangin district of southern Helmand province. Many Afghans fear overall security is deteriorating.
The bulk of NATO troops are due to withdraw this year and Afghan security forces have taken primary responsibility for securing the country.
