Reuters reports a car bomb exploded near a high-security international zone in eastern Kabul known as the Green Village on Wednesday evening followed by bursts of gunfire, police and local residents said. "Initial reports we have gathered show that the Green Village is the target. Small explosions from either grenades or RPGs (rocket propelled grenades) can be heard,” said the senior security official on condition of anonymity. An interior ministry spokesman said it was a car bomb. The Green Village is a sprawling, heavily guarded complex housing foreign contractors and various facilities in the east of the capital.
