A Taliban car bomb aimed at Afghan security forces ripped through a busy Kabul neighborhood Wednesday, killing 14 people and wounding 145 – most of them women, children and other civilians – shortly after the extremist group and the United States reported progress on negotiating an end to Afghanistan’s nearly 18-year war.
The bombing during morning rush hour was one of the worst attacks in Kabul this year, and it again raised fears among Afghans about what will happen once the estimated 20,000 U.S. and NATO troops in their country go home.
The explosives-packed car detonated at a security checkpoint outside police headquarters in a minority Shiite neighborhood in western Kabul.
