The explosion, in Kandahar's residential area of Shehr-e-Nau, occurred in front of a home being used as a workplace by the U.N. Office Project Support, said Siddiqullah, an Afghan who is in charge of humanitarian operations for the U.N. in southern Afghanistan.
The blast, which occurred minutes after U.N. employees had left the building at the end of their work day, smashed a front gate, cracked walls in the building and broke its windows, said Mr. Siddiqullah, who like many Afghans only uses one name. No one was hurt there, but a man driving by on a motorcycle was wounded by the blast, he said.
There was no immediate claim of responsibility. AP
