KABUL, Afghanistan, June 13 (UPI) -- Four Afghans were killed in Afghanistan by a suicide bomber driving a truck into a hotel parking lot used by NATO forces, officials said.
The New York Times reported Saturday that eight other people were injured and 12 vehicles were destroyed in the attack Friday.
The newspaper said the bomb attack is believed to be among the first in Afghanistan targeting a stationary convoy.
The Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack in the northern area of Gereshk district.
"The man who carried out the blessed duty against those who help the occupying troops was named Abdul Aziz from Helmand," said a Taliban spokesman, Qari Yousuf Ahmadi. "In the future, we will continue to target convoys and those who escort and drive them."
A NATO official said Friday's attack will have "absolutely no effect on our supplies" because of alternate storage facilities.
"We have so many different ways of getting into the country," the official said.
