A suicide bomber has killed at least one person and wounded 13 in an attack on a road near Kabul Airport, two weeks after a major Taliban assault in the Afghan capital.
A police officer at the scene said the suicide bomber walked up to a white pickup truck and detonated the explosives he was wearing. A minibus was also destroyed by the explosion, which shattered the windows of nearby shops.
The head of the city's police, Abdul Rahman Rahimi, said one person had been killed and 13 wounded, including three women.
He said the aim of the attack in an overwhelmingly civilian area was to create fear among Afghans.
The suicide bombing followed a series of attacks this month claimed by Taliban insurgents, including an assault on a Spanish embassy guesthouse in the capital that started on 11 December, and a suicide bombing near Bagram Air Base that killed six American troops last week.
