Deadly suicide bombing in Afghanistan leaves several casualties

A suicide bomb attack outside the Afghan Foreign Ministry in Kabul has caused heavy casualties.

This comes after recent blasts targeting foreign interests as several countries including Turkey and China have embassies in the area.

Police said five civilians have been killed, but another Taliban official put the toll as high as twenty.

The local offshoot of the Islamic State group, known as Isis-K, claimed it carried out the attack.
