Sophisticated bomb found in Kabul
by Alastair Leithead

The new type of bomb is an extra worry for Kabul security ... A hi-tech bomb, similar to the ones used by militants in Iraq, has been found in the Afghan capital, Kabul.

Afghan intelligence sources say the bomb can penetrate heavily armoured vehicles and was set up by a road to target a high-level government convoy.

There is increasing evidence that sophisticated explosives technology is crossing into Afghanistan from Iraq. Police and government officials say they believe Iran is the source of these so-called "shaped charges.
