Afghanistan: Suicide car bomber hits Kabul

Latest news

    At least four people have been wounded in a suicide bombing in the Afghan capital, Kabul, according to government officials.

    The explosion took place on Friday near a vehicle belonging to foreign workers in the eastern part of the city, Najib Danish, a spokesperson for the interior ministry, said.

    Bismillah Tabaan, a police commander, confirmed the cause of the blast was a suicide bombing, Reuters news agency reported.

    Eyewitnesses said at least one person was killed in the blast, and four others wounded, TOLO news reported.

    There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the explosion.

    The Afghan capital has seen a spate of deadly attacks carried out by the Taliban and the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL, also known as ISIS) group, whose affiliate in Afghanistan has grown in recent years.

    In January, Taliban claimed responsibility for two separate attacks that killed nearly 130 people.

    The blast comes two days after Afghan President Ashraf Ghani offered to recognise the Taliban as a legitimate political group, as part of a proposed process he said could lead to talks aimed at ending more than 16 years of war.
