KABUL, Afghanistan (AA): At least six people died and a dozen more were injured in an early morning suicide attack in Afghanistan’s capital on Tuesday.

An Interior Ministry spokesman said a suicide bomber struck in Kabul’s Qambar Square area during the morning rush hour.

“The bomber detonated his suicide vest at around 7 a.m. (0230 GMT). Two civilians and four security personnel have been martyred in the attack and 12 more people are injured,” spokesman Nusrat Rahimi told Anadolu Agency.

“This is the initial figure and more details will be shared later in the day,” he added.

There has been no immediate claim of responsibility for the suicide attack.

“Six people including two civilians and four military personnel were killed,” interior ministry spokesman Nasrat Rahimi told Reuters, adding that 12 people were wounded, five of them civilians.

“It wasn’t our work,” said Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid in a text message to Reuters.

The site of the bombing is close to the military academy the Marshal Fahim Military Academy, in Kabul, which was targeted in a number of similar attacks claimed by the Taliban and Daesh in the past.
