A reported suicide bomb blast apparently targeting a convoy of NATO vehicles has hit the Afghan capital of Kabul not far from the US Embassy. The first images from the scene appear to show a car on fire and damaged armored Humvees.
At least four people were killed in the blast and 22 more injured, Reuters reported citing local health officials.
Several civilians were reportedly injured, including those traveling in vehicles next to the blast site. Pajhwok Afghan News earlier cited reports saying there were “10 people killed and wounded.”
The bomb went off during rush-hour morning traffic in Kabul’s Macroyan area near Abdul Haq Square at about 8am local time. TOLOnews cited an unconfirmed account as saying “an old man sitting next to the road” carried out the attack.
