Death Toll Rises To 40 In Afghan Bombing‘, The New York Times, 26 August 2009 “The death toll rose to over 40 on Wednesday, a day after a huge bomb detonated in a part of Kandahar where international aid agencies and United Nations offices are clustered, in an attack assumed to be by the Taliban on foreigners in the country. More than 60 people were wounded in the blast, which occurred in a largely residential neighborhood just after dusk on Tuesday as Afghans were gathering for the festive evening meal that breaks their daily Ramadan fast.

Deadliest bomb in over a year.
