A car bomb explodes in Afghanistan's capital city, Kabul, killing at least seven people. The Taliban has claimed responsibility for the blast. The violence is reportedly part of a stepped-up pattern of attacks in the weeks leading up to Afghanistan's October elections. NPR's Jennifer Ludden talks to Pamela Constable of The Washington Post.
