KABUL, Sep 29 (Reuters) A bomb attack on a bus carrying Afghan army troops in the capital Kabul today killed at least 10 people, a Reuters witness said.

Police at the scene initially said it was a suicide bomb attack, but one official said it could have been caused by a large land mine.

''I think it was a mine,'' Deputy Interior Minister Mohammad Munir Mangal told Reuters at the scene. ''There are reports of another blast in the city, but it has not yet been confirmed.'' The bus was completely destroyed by the blast and shop windows were shattered all around. Residents helped police pick up pieces of flesh and put them into plastic bags.

''The explosion happened just after a group of Afghan National Army soldiers got onto the bus,'' said witness Mohammad Zaher who had cuts in his forehead from flying glass.
