At least 1 dead in car bombing near Kabul airport


At least one person was killed and four others were wounded in a car bombing near Kabul International Airport, Afghan authorities said.

The Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack Monday, saying they were targeting a military convoy of the U.S.-led coalition.

But the dead and wounded initially reported by Afghan Interior Ministry Spokesman Sediq Sediqqi were all civilians.

Taliban insurgents have repeatedly launched attacks targeting the heavily fortified Kabul airport, part of which is used for military purposes.
