28 killed, 141 wounded in Kabul blast outside Indian Embassy

A suicide car bomb exploded near the Indian Embassy in central Kabul early Monday, killing 28 people and wounding 141, officials said. The massive bomb rattled much of Kabul and exploded near a row of metal turnstiles outside the embassy, where dozens of Afghan men line up every morning to apply for visas. The embassy sits on a busy, tree-lined street in central Kabul near Afghanistan's Interior Ministry. Several nearby shops were damaged or destroyed in the blast, and smoldering ruins covered the street.
