A large explosion has rocked the Afghan capital, Kabul.
Authorities said the August 10 blast was caused by a suicide car-bomber who struck at a checkpoint just outside the Kabul airport.
Afghan Health Ministry spokesman Wahidullah Mayar posted on Twitter that seven civilians, including a child, were killed in the attack.
An Interior Ministry official was quoted as saying "there are both civilian and security-forces casualties."
The AFP news agency reported numerous ambulances at the scene.
No one immediately claimed responsibility for the attack.
The explosion comes just days after a series of suicide attacks in Kabul left dozens dead and hundreds injured.
The August 7 attacks marked the bloodiest day in Kabul since the withdrawal of most international combat troops at the end of 2014.
