Suicide bombing near Kabul Airport


Kabul: Escalating attacks on NATO troops, the militants triggered a car bomb explosion near the Kabul airport on Sunday morning. Three people have been so far killed and 20 injured in the blast, authorities are fearing many might have succumbed in the blast.

Police spokesman Ebadullah Karimi said a suicide bomber in a Toyota Corolla rammed a convoy of foreign troops on the road from Kabul’s main airport to a NATO military installation nearby. He could give no further details.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility, though Taliban insurgents have launched a wave of attacks around the country since the drawdown of most foreign troops last year to a small training force.
