PAGHMAN, Afghanistan - A bomb ripped through an Afghan provincial governor's vehicle on Saturday, killing the politician and three others, officials said.

The Taliban claimed responsibility for the blast that killed Abdullah Wardak, the governor of Logar province. Two of Wardak's bodyguards and a driver were also killed, said Gen. Zalmay Khan, a police commander in Kabul province.

A witness said two men on a nearby hilltop set off the bomb by remote control.
