      Kandahar bomb blast leaves 15 injured
      ------------------------------------------------------------------
      KANDAHAR, Dec 6: At least 15 Afghans were injured in Kandahar on
      Saturday in a bomb blast that police blamed on the Taliban. The
      explosion at the Shahidan Chowk roundabout shopping area destroyed
      five shops and shattered windows in nearby stores and hotels.

      At least 15 people were injured but there were no reports of any
      fatalities, a police official said.

      He said all the injured were Afghan civilians. "No foreigners were
      injured or killed."

      The official blamed the attack on "the enemies of the government", an
      allusion to the Taliban, who continue to wage resistance in the south
      and east of the country two years after their ouster.

      The spokesman said the bomb had been placed on a bicycle behind a
      parked car. Both were destroyed in the blast.

      Debris from the explosion littered the road, which was splattered
      with blood. The injured were taken to hospitals and a large number of
      police were at the scene. It was the third attack in the city this
      week, following a grenade attack that seriously injured two US
      soldiers and an attack on a mosque.

      The attacks follow a car bombing at the main UN compound in Kandahar
      on Nov 11 that injured three Afghans.

      A bomb went off on Thursday evening in fields next to the
      headquarters of the International Security Assistance Force and US
      embassy in Kabul shortly after US Defence Secretary Donald Rumsfeld
      met President Hamid Karzai.-AFP
