Afghanistan: Suicide Bombing in Capital 5 killed

KABUL, AFGHANISTAN

Afghan officials say a suicide blast early Monday in Kabul killed at least five civilians and injured two others.

The bombing occurred near a security check post on a busy road in the capital. The bomber apparently wanted to target Afghan security forces and instead hit a civilian car, said Najib Danish, an Interior Ministry spokesman.

The victims included women whose car was going past the area at the time of the blast, reports said.

The Islamic State group claimed responsibility for the blast through its Amaq news agency.

Monday’s bombing comes a week after Islamic State claimed an attack on a National Directorate of Security training facility in Kabul.
