AfghanistanCar bomb blast kills 14 near US Embassy in Kabul

KABUL: At least 14 people were killed while 38 others sustained injuries in a powerful car bomb blast that occurred near the United States Embassy in Kabul on Tuesday, security officials said.

The blast targeted minibuses taking Afghan Supreme Court staff home in the Afghan capital, police said.

Supreme Court workers were getting on minibuses to go home when the bomber struck. Kabul’s deputy police chief Dawood Amin said eight people were killed and dozens wounded.

“A large explosion occurred near the Supreme Court but it’s still not clear if it was a suicide attack or not,” said Najib Nikzad, the Interior Ministry’s deputy spokesman. Women and children were among the casualties, he said.

Nikzad said that the bomb was in a car and was triggered as the minibuses left the compound.
