Blast near Afghan foreign ministry kills six
At least six civilians have been killed by an attack in Afghanistan’s capital near a security checkpoint leading to the foreign ministry, according to police.
“In Malik Asghar Square… a suicide attacker before reaching the target was identified at a check point and killed but his explosives detonated,” Kabul police spokesperson Khalid Zadran said.
He said several people were injured, including three Taliban security force members.
He did not name the target but the blast took place in a busy downtown area near a checkpoint that guards a heavily fortified street housing several government buildings, including the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
