    KABUL, Afghanistan - Six international service members were killed and several wounded when a suicide vehicle-born improvised explosive device exploded near an ISAF convoy and civilian vehicles travelling on Darulaman Road in Kabul this morning.

    Numerous Afghan civilians were also killed and injured in the indiscriminate attack.

    The injured have been evacuated to medical treatment facilities.

    "ISAF strongly condemns the attack on civilians and ISAF forces.

    This sort of desperate brutality and aggression reminds us of the pessimism of an enemy who seek to kill the innocent and to stop the progress necessary for a better Afghanistan. This will not deter us from our mission of securing a better future for this country," said Brig. Gen. Josef Blotz, ISAF spokesperson.

    The explosion additionally damaged five ISAF vehicles and more than a dozen civilian vehicles.

    ISAF is assisting the Afghan national security forces in securing the area and investigating the incident.
