Attack on Afghan intelligence service team kills four

An attack targeting members of Afghanistan’s main intelligence agency just outside the capital Kabul on Tuesday killed at least four people and wounded six others, a senior security official said.

The official said it was a suicide attack on an operational team from the National Directorate for Security, but he refrained from giving furtehr details.

The blast took place in Paghman district in western Kabul early on Tuesday as the convoy was returning from an overnight operation.

A spokesperson said “It is still not clear whether the attacker was on foot or driving a vehicle,” the spokesman said.

Another security official, who wished to remain anonymous, said the attacker had used a car bomb to target the convoy.

Attacks on Afghan forces by the Taliban have been inflicting record-high casualties on security personnel this year.
