Blast Rocks Kabul, Killing More Than a Dozen

KABUL: More than a dozen have been killed and more than 70 wounded, after a massive explosion from a suicide car bomb attack rocked central Kabul, the third attack claimed by the Taliban in as many days in the country. 

The attack took place on Monday night in a residential area near Green Village, a large compound that houses aid agencies and international organisations, interior ministry spokesman Nasrat Rahimi said.

The attack took place while Afghanistan’s main TV station aired an interview with the US envoy Zalmay Khalilzad, who was discussing a potential deal with the Taliban that would see the US withdraw forces from five bases across Afghanistan.

Gunfire could be heard in the aftermath of the blast along with a secondary explosion when a nearby petrol station caught fire, sending plumes of smoke into the night sky.
