A bomb hidden on a minibus carrying Afghan laborers to a coalition base in southern Afghanistan exploded Thursday, killing up to 10 people, police and US military officials said. The attack occurred in Kandahar as the bus was carrying the workers to the Kandahar Airfield, the coalition headquarters in southern Afghanistan, said Abdul Hakim Hungar, the deputy provincial police chief. Hungar said 10 people had been killed and 15 injured. The blast destroyed the bus and left blood and body parts scattered on a road in downtown Kandahar, a former Taliban stronghold.
