Foreigners among Kabul bomb dead


Afghan police say a suicide bomber was behind an attack on a supermarket in Kabul frequented by expat workers.

Eight people are said to have died, three of whom were foreigners. Reporters say a child was among those killed. A further six people were injured in the blast.

The Taliban have claimed responsibility for the attack, the deadliest in Afghanistan’s capital for nearly a year. A spokesman said the blast was planned to take place as foreigners, including the head of a private security company, were shopping.

The supermarket was located near the British embassy.
