THE NEW YORK TIMES (USA), THE TELEGRAPH (UK)
A remote controlled bomb killed at least nine people and wounded three others outside of Kabul early Tuesday morning. An improvised explosive device was detonated underneath a bridge as a crowded bus carrying commuting Afghans drove overhead, northwest of the capital city.
The suspect was captured by local villagers after running away from the scene with the remote control and unused explosives, according to Afghan police.
The New York Times reports that the man who detonated the bomb was a suspected insurgent who had been captured and then released by Afghan security authorities two years ago.
No one has claimed responsibility for the bombing, according to the Telegraph. A Taliban spokesman said they were investigating the bombing, as the group tries to distance itself from attacks that kill innocent people, the New York Times reports.
Also on Tuesday, Afghan police said that an explosive-laden truck bomb rammed into a NATO base in the east of the country, wounding at least 11 Afghan civilians. The Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack.
