12 die in Afghan market bombing
by UPI

KABUL, Afghanistan -- A suicide bomber detonated a charge after walking up to a police convoy Thursday, killing 12 people at a western Afghanistan market, authorities said.

Afghan authorities said five of the dead were police officers while 26 others were injured in the explosion, CNN reported. The report said the Taliban claimed responsibility but there were conflicting reports over the identity of the bomber. The local police chief said the bomber was woman, while the Taliban said a man carried out the attack.

The bombing happened in the Del Aram district of Farah province in western Afghanistan, police said.
