A suicide bomber attacked a military convoy in Kabul Tuesday morning, killing three NATO soldiers and injuring 16 civilians.
The explosion took place around 8 a.m. local time in heavy traffic on the airport road near the Supreme Court, according to the BBC.
Witnesses said a vehicle from the convoy was completely destroyed in the attack, and injured soldiers were seen receiving first aid soon after.
The Taliban claimed responsibility for the blast, which took place amid uncertainty and controversy over Afghanistan’s recent presidential elections. The elections have been dogged by allegations of fraud.
The nationalities of the soldiers in the convoy are not yet known, reports said.
