KABUL, Afghanistan - An apparent car-bomb exploded in an eastern Afghan city Wednesday, killing the driver, hours before first lady Laura Bush was due in the country.
The car exploded at about 8:30 a.m. in Jalalabad, 80 miles east of the capital Kabul, intelligence chief Bahram Khan told The Associated Press. Mrs. Bush was expected in Kabul around noon.
Khan said investigators suspected the driver had been planning a suicide attack, but that the bomb detonated prematurely. No one else was injured.
