One person was hurt when the attacker, who was on foot, blew himself up as agency employees were on their way to work.

The Afghan capital has been targeted by the Taliban and other militants on many occasions in recent months.

In May, a huge bomb in the diplomatic quarter killed more than 150 people.

No group has so far claimed responsibility for Monday's blast.
