At least one person has been killed after an explosives-laden vehicle targeted a convoy of foreign forces in the Afghan capital, Kabul. At least 21 people, including women and children, were also hurt in Tuesday’s deadly attack which took place on the main road to Kabul airport, around 500 meters (550 yards) from the US embassy. Afghanistan’s Foreign Ministry confirmed the attack with Sediq Sediqqi, a ministry spokesman, saying, “It was a suicide car bomber targeting a convoy of foreign forces in Kabul.” The US-led military alliance in Afghanistan officially ended its combat mission on December 31, 2014. Insecurity still persists in the war-torn country despite the presence of at least 13,500 foreign troops.
