Suicide bombing kills at least 6 in central Kabul
Afghan authorities say a suicide bomber has blown himself up near Nato headquarters in Kabul, killing at least 6 people.

AFGHAN AUTHORITIES SAY a suicide bomber has blown himself up near Nato headquarters in Kabul, killing at least 6 people.

Kabul deputy police chief Daud Amin says the US Embassy, the Italian embassy and the presidential palace are also located near the site of Saturday’s attack.

The Ministry of Interior says six people were killed and five others were wounded.

The attack came as Afghans celebrated the 11th anniversary of the death of Ahmad Shah Massoud, the charismatic Northern Alliance commander who was killed in an al-Qaeda suicide bombing two days before the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. The alliance joined with the United States to help rout the Taliban after America invaded Afghanistan a month later in the wake of the attacks.
