Two Indian diplomats and two security personnel and over 40 Afghans were killed when a suicide bomber blew up a car packed with explosives at the gates of the Indian embassy in Kabul Monday, the worst terror attack in the Afghan capital since the Taliban`s fall in 2001. More than 100 people ÃÂ overwhelmingly Afghans ÃÂ were injured in the deafening blast around 8.30 am. when the embassy was opening for work and a large number of Afghans were queuing up outside to get visas, media reports and Indian and Afghan officials said. The victims were mostly civilians, including women and children, an Afghan official added.
