At least 7 dead in explosion inside Afghan 'Green Zone'

An Afghan official says at least three people were killed after a suicide bomber carried out an attack in central Kabul, near the U.S. Embassy.

The Taliban and Islamic State insurgents have stepped up their suicide attacks on security installations and mosques in recent weeks, killing or wounding hundreds. The attack in 14th Street in Wazir Akbar Khan area inside the Green Zone claimed the lives of 13 persons. All the casualties appeared to be Afghan civilians.

Minister of External Affairs Sushma Swaraj on Tuesday said no Indian national was injured in Kabul suicide attack in Afghanistan.

Ambulances were seen taking the victims to hospitals and helicopters were flying over the area. Defence ministry spokesman Dawlat Waziri said the bomber "made it through the first checkpoint but was stopped at the second checkpoint and detonated".

"We don't know the target but it happened a few metres from the defence ministry's foreign relations office".

Afghan and Western security officials have said in recent days that they expected more attacks in Kabul in response to pressure being exerted on the Taliban and other insurgent groups by increased U.S. air strikes. At that point, he got off the motorcycle and set off the blast, officials said.
