Kabul, Oct 11 (IANS) A foreign military vehicle was severely damaged on Sunday in an explosion targetting a convoy of NATO-led forces in the Afghan capital, a media report said.
The blast took place at around 9.15 a.m. along Hsamayi Road on Sunday when a convoy of NATO-led forces was passing by the area, witness Mohammad Najib told Xinhua.
“One foreign military vehicle was severely damaged by the blast. Several civilian vehicles were also damaged by the attack,” the witness said.
