A suicide attack on a bus carrying staff from an appeal court killed 10 people and wounded four on Wednesday west of the Afghan capital, Kabul, an interior ministry spokesman said.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack, which came as the Taliban confirmed their former leader Mullah Akhtar Mansour had been killed in a US drone strike and would be succeeded by his deputy, Haibatullah Akhunzada.
