KABUL, Afghanistan - Kabul police say a remote-control roadside bomb has killed at least eight Afghan civilians who were traveling on a bus just northwest of the Afghan capital.
The criminal director for Kabul police says the bomb was placed under a bridge and was detonated when the bus traveled over the span.
He says at least four other people were wounded in the blast around 7 a.m. Tuesday as Afghans were making their way to work.
Initial reports were that the bus was ferrying government employees to an Afghan ministry, but those reports could not yet be verified.
