A bus on which Afghan soldiers were riding to work was bombed in Kabul by a dude with overcoat and an umbrella. It looks like he just slid himself under the bus and detonated, injuring 7 people, six of whom were soldiers says the Associated Press;
The attacker set down his umbrella in the middle of the road as he approached the bus, then lay down next to the bus and pushed himself underneath, Shakib said.
“I thought to myself, `What is this crazy man doing? And then there was a blast and flames,’” Shakib said.
Taliban spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid claimed responsibility for the attack in a text message to The Associated Press.
There no word yet if Afghanistan’s President Hamid Karzai has condemned the attack yet, or ordered the Taliban out of Kabul like he’s done with American special forces soldiers in neighboring Wardak Province.
