Kabul Police Chief Mohammad Ayub Salangi says one person was killed and six wounded in the attack. Police officer Abdul Manan says the attack appears to have been a suicide car bomb. The US Embassy was hosting a Thanksgiving Day footrace, and Americans and other Westerners were entering the embassy compound at the time of the explosion.
