Suicide Bomb in Afghanistan Claims Unknown Number of Lives

| No Comments

A suicide bomber drove a car full of explosives into an armored bus in Kabul, Afghanistan on Saturday and killed American soldiers along with other causalities.

This bombing was the deadliest attack on Americans in Kabul throughout the duration of the war, military officials told The New York Times.

A western diplomat told CNN that it is difficult to know for sure how many casualties there were because not everyone on the bus was on the passenger list.

CNN reported that nine Americans, four Afghans, two British civilians, one Kosovo national, and one Canadian soldier were killed in the suicide bombing.

However, The New York Times reports that at least 12 Americans were killed.

President Hamid Karzai only referenced the Afghans who were killed and their families during a meeting Saturday night, ignoring the other casualties, according to The New York Times.
