Suicide bomber attack killed four in Kabul

A suicide bombing in Afghanistan’s capital, Kabul, has killed at least 4 people and injured 13 others.

The Afghan interior ministry says a young man blew himself up on Tuesday evening in the heavily fortified diplomatic quarter known as the Green Zone.

The explosion took place near the Australian Embassy, but police say the mission suffered no damage.

Back in May, more than 150 people died in the same area when a truck loaded with a huge amount of explosives blew up.

The Amaq news agency, which has links with the Islamic State militant group, claims that the group carried out the attack.

The group has lost its self-proclaimed capital of Raqqa in northern Syria, but its regional organization in Afghanistan has been active in carrying out terrorist attacks.
