At least 13 persons were killed today when a suicide bomber struck a bus carrying security personnel in Afghanistan’s capital Kabul, officials said.

“The bus was running along a busy road in Pul-e-Charkhi area at around 6.30 a.m. A terrorist rammed his explosive-laden car into the bus, causing a heavy explosion,” witness Farhad Mohammadi told media.

“Most of the victims were foreign security guards onboard the bus. Initial information showed they were Nepalese,” a security official said.

Twenty-five others were inured in the attack, the official said.

The Taliban terrorist group has claimed responsibility for the attack.
