10 Killed, 120 Injured Including Many Foreigners In Kabul Bomb Blast

At least ten people were killed and 42 others were wounded in a car bomb attack in Kabul on Thursday morning, the Afghan Ministry of Interior (MOI) said in a statement.

The attack took place at around 10:10 am local time after a suicide car bomber detonated his explosives close to a National Directorate of Security (NDS) checkpoint in the heavily fortified area in downtown Kabul.

The ministry did not provide further details about the attack. The Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack and claimed to have targeted a foreign forces convoy which was entering an NDS facility in the area.

The area was blocked to traffic by the security forces and the ambulances have referred the victims to Wazir Akbar Khan and Emergency hospitals.

The attack happened three days after a truck bomb attack targeted Green Village compound in the east of Kabul that killed 16 people including five Nepalese, two British and Romanian nationals and wounded 119 others including foreigners.
