A suicide bomber detonated himself in front of Afghanistan's Interior Ministry early Saturday morning. Police reported "many" people were killed and wounded. The explosion near the front gate of the ministry occurred around 7:30 a.m., just as ministry employees were reporting to work. A high school located across from the ministry, caused police to fear that students were also among the casualties, said Ali Shah Paktiawal, Kabul police criminal director.
