KABUL - A powerful blast targeting an armored NATO convoy in Kabul killed at least eight people and wounded 27 on Wednesday, including three coalition soldiers, officials said days after the Taliban announced their spring offensive.

The attack, which came during morning rush hour on a busy road near the US embassy and NATO headquarters, killed mostly civilians, an Interior Ministry spokesman said without giving a breakdown.

NATO said three coalition soldiers had received "nonlife threatening wounds".
