Kabul bomb hits Turkish embassy car

A suicide attack on a Turkish embassy vehicle in Kabul has killed at least one person, Afghan officials say, the BBC reports.

The bomber rammed a vehicle carrying explosives into the car in the Afghan capital’s diplomatic quarter, reports said.

In a text message, the Taliban said it carried out the attack, which happened around 08:00 (03:30GMT).

There have been sporadic attacks in Kabul recently. In November, a British embassy car was targeted by a bomber.

Five people were killed in that attack, including one British national.

Another attack took place in January, when a suicide bomber hit a European Union police vehicle, killing a passer-by.

Thursday’s blast took place outside the Iranian embassy, which is next to the Turkish mission.
