A suicide bomb planted in a Toyota Corolla parked near the Indian embassy in Kabul exploded Thursday morning killing at least 12 civilians, many of them workers cleaning the streets, and wounding at least 67 people. Indian foreign secretary Nirupama Rao said that the embassy was the target of the attack, and it's not the first time. In July of last year, 58 people, including two senior Indian diplomats, were killed and 141 were injured in a bombing that U.S. intelligence officials blamed on elements of Pakistan's Inter Services Intelligence agency. While the size of Thursday's explosion was comparable to that attack, security measures implemented in the intervening time appear to have protected staff.
