A suicide bomber has killed four foreign security guards in an attack at a compound in Kabul on Tuesday. Afghan police say the bomber, who was riding a motorcycle, set off his explosives near the entrance of the compound that houses the counter narcotics department as well as a foreign contractor. At least six people were wounded in the blast that took place near Kabul's airport.
The Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack, saying 15 "invader soldiers" were killed and many vehicles damaged at what it said was a foreign intelligence base. The insurgent group often exaggerates death tolls and details of its attacks.
