At least eight civilians have been killed and about 400 others have been injured after a powerful truck bomb exploded near an army compound in the center of the Afghan capital, according to Wahidullah Mayar, a spokesman for the Afghan Ministry of Public Health. Most of those injured sustained relatively minor injuries from flying glass. The bombing, which happened at around 1 a.m. local time, destroyed a number of homes and shops.
