Suicide blast East AfghanistanA suicide car bombing in Afghanistan killed at least 89 people Tuesday, with more than 40 people also wounded in the attack in the country’s eastern Paktika province, according to an Afghan general. Meanwhile, in the capital Kabul, a remote control device concealed along a roadside killed two employees of President Hamid Karzai's media office and wounded five, police said.

In Paktika, a suspected militant detonated his explosives-packed vehicle near a crowded market and a mosque in the Urgun district of the province in eastern Afghanistan. The Taliban claimed responsibility.

The attack took place not far from the porous border with Pakistan's North Waziristan region, where the military has been attacking hideouts of the Pakistani Taliban in the past few weeks, prompting armed fighters to retreat towards Afghanistan.

The United Nations said last week civilian casualties in the region jumped by almost a quarter in the first half of this year as hostilities escalate.

The bombings took place as foreign troops, most of them Americans, prepare to withdraw from the country, prompting fears of a security vacuum and the potential of a resurgent Taliban.
