    The bomber walked between two vehicles carrying the delegation and detonated his explosives belt, a security source said.

    The impact of the blast shattered the convoy's windows.

    Sunday's attack was the worst incident involving South Korean travellers since 2007, when 23 aid workers were taken hostage by Taliban fighters in Afghanistan.
