KABUL, Afghanistan – A Taliban truck bomb exploded in the Afghan capital Sunday, wounding two people in the first attack targeting Kabul in almost three weeks, officials said.

Interior Ministry spokesman Sediq Sediqqi suggested the blast, which happened just before 6 a.m. (0130 GMT, 8:30 p.m. EST) at a gas station near Kabul's military airport, might have been a premature suicide attack. The bombing wounded two civilians, Sediqqi said.
