An explosion has ripped through a minibus in the Afghan capital Kabul killing and wounding several people.
Police have said it was carrying government employees although it could have been Nepalese security contractors.

The blast was caused by a suicide bomber. It follows a Taliban claimed suicide attack on a bus carrying justice ministry staff near Kabul last month and a separate attack on a court in the central city of Ghazni on June 1.

The incident underlines how serious the security threat facing Afghanistan remains since the death of former Taliban leader Mullah Akhtar Mansour in a US drone strike last month.
