Topic: Bomb outside Afghan Justice Ministry kills five, wounds dozens


By Hamid Shalizi and Kay Johnson KABUL (Reuters) - A car bomb exploded in the parking lot of Afghanistan's Ministry of Justice on Tuesday, killing at least five people and wounding dozens as civil servants in Kabul were leaving work for the day, officials said. The Taliban claimed responsibility for the third attack targeting justice system employees this month, saying the insurgents would continue to kill "slave" judges and prosecutors. The huge explosion sent black smoke billowing above the city and was strong enough to rattle windows several kilometers away in Kabul's diplomatic district.
