Afghanistan: Suicide bomber strikes in Kabul
Nov.16, Kabul: A suicide bomber on a motorbike has killed at least four people and wounded several others in an attack on a vehicle carrying national security officials in Kabul, according to a security official.
An interior ministry official confirmed Wednesday's attack but could not say immediately how many people had been killed or wounded.
"The suicide bomber was on a motorbike and detonated himself in the Pul Mahmood Khan area [in Kabul]. The target is unclear but there were casualties," said Najib Danish, an interior ministry spokesperson.
There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack.
The attack underscores a worsening security situation nearly two years after NATO formally ended its combat operations in Afghanistan.
Last week, four people were killed and 128 others were wounded when a suicide bomber drove truck loaded with explosives into the German consulate in the northern city of Mazar-i-Sharif.
At least four people were killed in an explosion inside the largest US military base in Afghanistan, with the Taliban claiming responsibility for the attack.
