Six civilians in killed in IS-claimed suicide attack in Kabul

Vastavam web: A suicide bomber killed six civilians in an attack near an Afghan intelligence agency compound in Kabul today in the latest assault claimed by the Islamic State group in the capital.The attacker struck as workers were arriving at the offices of the National Directorate of Security (NDS), a week after militants stormed an NDS training centre in Kabul.”They were hit when they were passing the area in their Toyota sedan vehicle. We still do not know the target of the attack but it happened on the main road.”

Security forces have swarmed into the area, closing off the main road leading to the building.Ambulances were seen leaving the scene, apparently taking casualties to hospitals in the city.”Our initial information shows a blast took place near an intelligence headquarters in Shash Darak neighbourhood of Kabul,” deputy interior ministry spokesman Nasrat Rahimi told AFP.Security in the city has been ramped up since May 31 when a massive truck bomb ripped through the diplomatic quarter, killing some 150 people and wounding around 400 others mostly civilians.
