An Afghan teenager was killed and five US embassy security personnel were wounded Monday as a suicide car bomber ended months of relative calm in the Afghan capital by exploding his car next to a US Embassy convoy, on a notoriously dangerous stretch of road. The two other US vehicles were also damaged, and flames shot through the wreckage of the suicide car bomb. A Taliban spokesman, Qari Yousef Ahmadi, said in a phone call to The Associated Press that a Taliban militant from Khost province carried out the attack. The explosion, witnessed by an AP reporter traveling behind the convoy, occurred about 3 kilometers from the embassy on the road that leads to the US base at Bagram and the town of Jalalabad to the east.
