A huge blast in Afghanistan killed 25 people including 13 primary school students today, destroying shops and scattering pieces of the vehicle that carried the explosives over a huge area.

The bomb was detonated after a truck carrying the device hidden in a pile of timber overturned as it travelled on the main road from Logar to Kabul. After police arrived to clear the road this morning, militants apparently remotely detonated a bomb planted in the back of the truck among the timber.

The blast killed 21 civilians and four policemen in Logar province, south of Kabul, ministry spokesman Zemerai Bashary said. At least 13 of those killed were children from nearby schools, said Kamaluddin Zadran, a provincial official. Another two schoolchildren were wounded and three others were missing.
