At least 14 foreign security guards were killed when a suicide bomber targeted a mini-bus in the Afghan capital early Monday, officials said.
Interior Ministry spokesman Sediq Sediqi said eight others were wounded.
Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid claimed responsibility. “A martyrdom attack was conducted on a vehicle carrying guards of foreign invaders,” he said on Twitter.
The suicide bomber was on foot, Kabul police spokesman Basir Mujahid said.
It was first such attacks in the capital since the start of the holy month of Ramadan.
