A suicide car bomber rammed a European Union vehicle near the main airport in Afghanistan's capital on Sunday, killing at least three people in the latest attack in the city, officials said.
The Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack on the European Union Police Mission in Afghanistan (EUPOL), which advises Afghan law enforcement authorities.
The insurgents have launched a wave of attacks around the country since the drawdown of most foreign troops last year to a small training force.
EUPOL spokeswoman Sari Haukka-Konu
confirmed that one of the mission's vehicles was hit by an explosion near Kabul airport
She said all the EUPOL personnel "are in a safe place" with non-fatal injuries
, but another person travelling in the vehicle was killed. She did not give the person's nationality.
Police spokesman Ebadullah Karimi
said a suicide bomber in a Toyota Corolla
rammed a foreign vehicle on the road from Kabul's main airport to a NATO military installation nearby.
