Attacks in Afghan civilian centers kill at least 59A suicide bomber rammed his car packed with explosives into a bus carrying government employees in the Afghan capital early Monday, killing 24 people and wounding 42 others.The attack came as a spokesman for Afghan President Ashraf Ghani said at least 35 people were killed when the Taliban assaulted a hospital in central Ghor province over the weekend. Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid said the target of the bombing was the intelligence services and their employees. He claimed the bus was filled with employees of the intelligence services and that Taliban insurgents spent the last two months shadowing the intelligence services employees before carrying out the attack. Last year, a bus carrying the ministry's employees was also targeted in an attack that killed several people.
