KABUL- A suicide bomber rammed a vehicle laden with explosives into a Turkish embassy car in the Afghan capital on Thursday, killing at least one person inside, the ministry of interior said.

The explosion struck in the heart of the heavily fortified diplomatic quarter, close to the German, Iranian and Turkish embassies, rattling windows and putting embassy staff on high alert.

"A suicide attack targeted a convoy of the Turkish embassy," deputy interior minister General Ayoub Salanghi told reporters at the site of the blast, adding that the driver of the vehicle had been killed and one person wounded.

The Taliban claimed responsibility.
