Ten Killed In Suicide Bombing Near Kabul

Afghan policemen keep watch near the site of a suicide bomb attack in Kabul on May 25.

A suicide attack on a vehicle carrying court employees has killed 10 people and wounded four others west of the Afghan capital, Kabul.

Interior Ministry spokesman Najib Danish said the attacker detonated his explosives vest as he walked by the vehicle in Paghman district during the morning rush hour on May 25.

The casualties include both court workers and civilians.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack, which came as the Afghan Taliban announced a new leader to replace Mullah Akhtar Mansur, who was killed in a U.S. drone strike last week.
