Blast rocks Afghan capital

At least seven people have reportedly been killed in the explosion near the US 
embassy [AFP]

At least seven people have reportedly been killed and 16 injured in a large 
explosion near the US embassy in the Afghan capital of Kabul, witnesses and 
police say.

Officials suspect it was a suicide attack that struck a convoy of foreign 
troops close to the embassy entrance on Thursday.

Reports say the bomber detonated explosives about 200 metres from the heavily 
guarded entrance to the US compound.

The head of criminal investigations of Kabul police said four civilians had 
been killed in the blast, but Mohammad Ayoub Salangi, Kabul police chief, said 
only one civilian had been killed and six more wounded when the bomber blew up 
his Toyota saloon car on a road near the embassy and the health ministry.
US embassy staff were off work for the Thanksgiving public holiday and were 
unlikely to be out on the roads at the time, an embassy spokesman said.

The blast occurred on the last day of the visit by the United Nations security 
council delegation.

The Taliban have claimed responsibility for the attack.

Security in Afghanistan has become a key concern for foreign troops and 
officials, as the country faces an increasingly resurgent Taliban.
