A suicide attacker riding a motorcycle blew himself up inside Kabul’s heavily fortified diplomatic zone on Tuesday killing at least three people and wounding 15, officials said, AFP reports.

“Our initial information shows the suicide attacker was on a motorcycle. He made it through the first checkpoint but was stopped at the second checkpoint and detonated,” defense ministry spokesman Dawlat Waziri told AFP.

“We don’t know the target but it happened a few meters from the defense ministry’s foreign relations office. No casualties to our personnel.”

A health ministry official confirmed the casualty toll.
