Newsline: Blast near US embassy in Kabul

At least two people were wounded on Monday when a magnetic bomb attached to a vehicle exploded near the U.S. embassy in the Afghan capital Kabul, police said. There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack. A report released by the United Nations last month says at least 1,601 civilians were killed and 3,565 wounded in the first six months of 2016, as insurgent groups like the Taliban try to topple the government installed in Kabul following the 2001 U.S.-led invasion.
