KABUL - Insurgents including a suicide bomber in a truck launched an attack on Tuesday in an area in the north of the Afghan capital used by foreign firms supplying NATO forces in Afghanistan, police said, the latest in a string of raids in Kabul.

Four employees of a foreign logistics and supply company were wounded in the attack, a driver for the company and a witness said. Police said at least two attackers were killed.

Kabul police chief General Ayoub Salangi said the early morning attack began when a suicide gunman drove a bomb-laden truck into a vehicle bay in a compound north of Kabul airport, triggering a loud explosion.

At least two other attackers then engaged in a brief gunfight with Afghan security forces before they were killed, Salangi said. Two suicide vests packed with explosives were recovered from the scene, he said.

A Reuters witness said he saw the bodies of two people being carried away, although it was not clear if they were those of the attackers or of other victims.
