A remote-controlled bomb has exploded outside the Afghan capital, killing at least eight civilians and wounding one other person.

Police say the blast Tuesday struck a bus in Paghman, just west of Kabul.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack.

Also Tuesday, NATO says an insurgent attack killed a coalition service member in eastern Afghanistan. It did not give further details on the attack or the nationality of the soldier.
