Kabul (Afghanistan): A suicide bomber detonated an explosives-packed car near Kabul's international airport on Sunday, killing at least three civilians and left 18 others wounded in an attack that may have been aimed at vehicles of the European Union Police Mission in Afghanistan, officials said.

He says one foreign vehicle and two civilian vehicles have been damaged, but casualties are not yet known. It is not yet clear whether the attacker was on foot or in a vehicle. No one has claimed responsibility. The Taliban, which have waged war in Afghanistan for more than a decade, launched their warm weather offensive in late April. The insurgents claimed responsibility for an attack on a Kabul guesthouse last week that left 14 people dead, including nine foreigners.
