Afghan police say a suicide bomber driving a small sedan rammed into a mini-bus believed to be carrying foreign aviation workers near Kabul airport, killing at least nine people.
Kabul police chief Gen. Mohammad Ayub Salangi says the large explosion took place Tuesday on a large avenue northwest of the city centre near Kabul International Airport.
The criminal director for Kabul police Mohammad Zahir says at least eight men believed to be foreign nationals working for an aviation company at the airport were killed. He said their Afghan driver was also killed.
An AP reporter on the scene saw at least six bodies next to the destroyed mini-van, which was tossed about 50 metres by the explosion.
