A huge explosion near the Afghan presidential palace rocked Kabul on Wednesday, killing scores of people and wounding hundreds of others. Officials do not know who was behind the blast, which shattered windows as far as a mile away. The blast originated in a tanker truck, an official said, and struck a crowded area of the capital that is home to several foreign embassies. The windows of the Kabul bureau of The New York Times were shattered by the blast.
