The Taliban carried out a devastating suicide car bombing in central Afghanistan on Sunday, leaving 12 people dead and more than 150 others wounded.
A provincial council member, Hasan Raza Yousafi, said the car bomb exploded near an intelligence department compound in Ghazni, the capital of the province of the same name. The dead included eight security personnel, he said.
Many of the wounded were students of a nearby high school, said provincial health department chief Zahir Shah Nekmal. He said most of the injured suffered cuts and scrapes from broken glass.
