Afghan V-P's convoy attacked, 10 dead

Kabul, Sep 9 (UNI) At least 10 people were killed and 15 others wounded in a roadside bomb attack that struck the convoy of Afghanistan's Vice-President Amrullah Saleh here on Wednesday.
Vice-president Saleh with his teenage son accompanying him aboard in a bomb-proof vehicle escaped unharmed, Saleh confirmed in a footage posted on his Facebook account.
"This vicious terrorist attempt has failed and Saleh survived today’s bombing in Kabul," Saleh's spokesperson Razwan Murad said, without offering more details, Ariana news reported.
Interior Ministry spokesman Arian said the blast also ignited a huge fire in the area, a section of Kabul where shops sell gas cylinders for use in heating homes and cooking. He feared the casualty figures could rise further.
The Taliban, who have pledged not to launch attacks in urban areas under a deal with the United States, denied responsibility. No group has taken the responsibility of the attack yet.
