A least 9 people were killed and a dozen others wounded after a suicide bomber blew himself up in front of a police station in central Kabul, Afghanistan on Monday, according to local police authorities.

Witnesses said the attacker had attempted to penetrate the police compound, and later detonated his explosives at the entrance.

Ambulances rushed to the scene which was cordoned off by police.

Most of those killed in the incident were civilians, said Feraidoon Obaidi, head of criminal investigations at Kabul Police Force.
