A suicide bomber on a motorbike has killed at least four people and wounded several others in an attack on a vehicle carrying national security officials in Kabul, according to a security official.

An interior ministry official confirmed Wednesday’s attack but could not say immediately how many people had been killed or wounded.

“The suicide bomber was on a motorbike and detonated himself in the Pul Mahmood Khan area [in Kabul]. The target is unclear but there were casualties,” said Najib Danish, an interior ministry spokesperson.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack.

The attack underscores a worsening security situation nearly two years after NATO formally ended its combat operations in Afghanistan.

Last week, four people were killed and 128 others were wounded when a suicide bomber drove truck loaded with explosives into the German consulate in the northern city of Mazar-i-Sharif.

At least four people were killed in an explosion inside the largest US military base in Afghanistan, with the Taliban claiming responsibility for the attack.
