Bomber strikes US convoy, killing at least 16

Six Americans among dead in Kabul attack

KABUL — A Toyota Corolla packed with explosives rammed a pair of US military vehicles in Kabul on Thursday, setting off a blast that killed at least 16 people, including six US military advisers and service members, and shook the relative calm that has prevailed for months in the capital, ­Afghan officials said.

The explosion rattled windows across Kabul. It left bodies strewn along the street and one of the US vehicles — an armored Chevrolet Suburban that weighed nearly 5 tons — in ruins more than 30 feet from the blast site.
