A suicide attack on a minibus in Kabul has killed at least 14 people and injured several more, authorities said, the BBC reports.

The bus, which was said to be carrying Nepalese security guards, was on a road to the eastern city of Jalalabad.

The attacker, who was on foot, waited for the bus as it left a compound, police said.

A Taliban spokesman claimed responsibility for the attack, the first since the start of the holy month of Ramadan.

“The suicide bomber targeted a minibus of security guards of a foreign company, right now we are working to identify the nationalities of the victims,” Interior Ministry spokesman Sediq Sediqqi told the Associated Press.
