KABUL, Afghanistan  — A packed bus hit a roadside bomb in southern Afghanistan on Wednesday killing 25 people aboard.



The passenger bus was traveling in Nimroz province on a main highway toward the capital, Kabul, when it struck the explosive at about 7 a.m., said Nazir Ahmad, a provincial government spokesman. Another 20 people were wounded, he said.



The explosion occurred near Delaram — a volatile area close to the borders of Helmand and Farah provinces.



Afghan President Hamid Karzai condemned the attack. "The criminals who did this are the enemies of Muslims," he said in a statement.
