Afghan Police: 14 Killed in Suicide Blast in Kabul



Afghan police say at least 14 people have been killed in a suicide car bombing that targeted staff of the Afghan Supreme Court.

Police say the explosion went off Tuesday as Supreme Court employees were boarding a bus outside the courthouse in Kabul.

The Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack and said the target was a Supreme Court official.

An Afghan government spokesman told VOA 39 people were wounded in the blast. He said a number of women were among the casualties.

The attack came a day after seven Taliban fighters were killed by Afghan security forces after launching a pre-dawn raid on Kabul's main airport.
