SHAFAQNA (Shia International News Association) – A suicide bomber has hit a UK embassy vehicle in the Afghan capital Kabul, with a British staff worker reported to be among five people killed. The other four who died and more than 30 people wounded were Afghans, officials say. Most of the victims are reported to have been bystanders.
The attack, carried out by a motorcycle bomber, was claimed by the Taliban. Taliban insurgents have stepped up attacks as most foreign troops prepare to leave Afghanistan next month. Thursday’s blast was heard across eastern parts of the city on Thursday morning. It comes three days after two US soldiers were killed in a bomb attack on Nato forces, also in eastern Kabul.
