Seven dead in embassy suicide blast
A SUICIDE bomber rammed an explosives-filled car into the gates of the Indian embassy in the Afghan capital Kabul today, killing at least seven people.
The blast destroyed about four cars outside the embassy in the heart of the city, and flesh and broken limbs were scattered at the scene, an Afghan witness told Agence France-Presse.
The bomber hit the thick embassy gate, he said.
"It was a suicide car bomb in front of the Indian embassy,'' Interior Ministry spokesman Zemarai Bashary said.
"There are casualties but at this time I don't have a figure.''
An official at the embassy told AFP by telephone: "The embassy has been attacked.''
