Kabul, March 15 (Xinhua) At least two civilians were killed and three injured when a suicide bomber rammed his explosive laden car into a foreign military vehicle Saturday in Afghanistan’s eastern province of Khost, officials said. The suicide car blast occurred at 11.15 a.m. in Ismal Khel district of Khost, said district chief Dulat Khan Qaumi, declining to give further information.

Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahed told Xinhua over phone from an unknown location that a Taliban fighter carried out the attack.

The bomber rammed his explosive-laden car into a foreign military vehicle and two other vehicles were damaged in the blasts.

The NATO-led International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) said it had no information yet on the attack.

Currently, around 43,000 international troops are deployed across Afghanistan for anti-insurgency operations.
