KABUL, Afghanistan  — A suicide bomber on a motorbike struck a minibus in the western part of the Afghan capital Wednesday, killing at least two people and wounding four, Interior Ministry spokesman Zemeri Bashary said.

Witnesses said the bus was carrying intelligence service employees on their way to work, but Bashary would not confirm the target.

The powerful blast on a busy street during Kabul's early morning rush hour shattered the windows of dozens of houses and buildings nearby, while the bus and two private vehicles were damaged. The suicide bomber's body and his destroyed motorbike lay nearby.

The bombing broke a relative reprieve from major attacks inside the Afghan capital in the past few months.
