KUNDUZ CITY (PANinfo-icon): Three civilians were killed and nearly a dozen others injured in a suicide bombing in the northern province of Kunduz on Sunday, the Interior Ministry said.

The bomber detonated his explosives when a convoy of foreign troops passed by the airport road in Kunduz City at 9:10 am, the ministry said in a statement.

The blast resulted in the deaths of three civilians and injuries to 11 others. German troops were the target.

Public Healthinfo-icon Director Dr. Zafar Noori confirmed receiving two dead bodies and nine injured men at the Kunduz civil hospital, some of them in critical condition.

ISAFinfo-icon's media office in Kunduz said two of their military vehicles were damaged in the blast, but the troops escaped uninjured.

A Talibaninfo-icon spokesman, Zabihullah Mujahid, said one of their fighters, Mudassir, a resident of northern Balkh province, carried out the attack using an explosives-laden jeep.

He claimed a dozen foreign soldiers were killed and several others were injured, while three of their vehicles and a police vehicle were destroyed.

Mujahid said after the explosion, an ISAF military vehicle crashed into a civilian car, killing five people.
