Officials in eastern Afghanistan say three suicide car bombers have attacked a construction company, killing 24 people and wounding more than 50 others. Authorities said the attack happened late Sunday in the Barmal district of Paktika province, when the bombers killed a security guard and then detonated a truck full of explosives. A provincial spokesman said the blast killed civilian workers at the site. The Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack, which was condemned by President Hamid Karzai.
