Suicide bombing, gunfire rock Kabul
KABUL (AFP) - A suicide car-bombing followed by several other explosions and gunfire rocked western Kabul around dawn on Monday, police and witnesses said.
A large pall of smoke was rising from the vicinity of a border police complex on the road to the parliament and the road had been sealed off, residents in the area told AFP.
A local police official told AFP the first large explosion was a suicide car bomb and was followed by several other blasts and gunfire.
Last week, a squad of suicide bombers attacked the Afghan intelligence agency headquarters in heavily fortified central Kabul, killing at least one guard and wounding dozens of civilians.
