Kabul: A Taliban suicide attack near the defence ministry in Kabul on Saturday killed nine people and wounded 13 others, police said, hours after another deadly blast in Afghanistan's restive east.

"Nine people were killed, 13 were wounded. Most of them were civilians," Kabul police chief Abdul Rahman Rahimi said at the scene of the blast, which detonated as offices closed for the day. The attack was claimed by the Taliban.
