KABUL - A United States citizen was among those killed in Tuesday's attacks in Afghanistan, the US embassy in Kabul said on Wednesday.

"We can confirm that a US citizen was tragically killed in the suicide attacks in Afghanistan on December 6," the embassy said in statement, giving no further details.

A suicide attack killed 55 people at a crowded Shi'ite Muslim shrine in Kabul on Tuesday, and four died in a smaller blast in a key northern city in the worst sectarian violence Afghanistan has seen since the fall of the Taliban.
