The explosion occurred in a crowded area of Kabul during the busy rush hour period. The interior ministry’s deputy spokesman, Najib Danish, confirmed there are casualties, although the number is unknown.

“It was a suicide bombing against a foreign forces convoy in a crowded part of the city and there are casualties,” he said.

Local media reports suggest seven civilians were injured in the blast, which caused an armoured vehicle to flip on its side.
