A suicide bomber boarded a crowded army bus and detonated a huge explosion that ripped off the roof and blasted out the sides, killing at least 27 people and wounding 21 on Saturday, officials said. Dozens of civilians and police officers picked through the charred hull of the bus immediately after the blast, searching for bodies. A high-ranking Afghan army medical official said 27 bodies had been taken to two hospitals. He asked not to be identified because he was not supposed to talk to the media.
