Suicide bomber attacks Kabul airport: 2 civilians killed, 6 wounded

A suicide car bomber blew up his vehicle outside a NATO military base at Kabul’s main airport on Tuesday killing at least two civilians, in the biggest attack in the Afghan capital since last month’s presidential election.

The attack was a further demonstration of deteriorating security at a time when violence is at its worst, an unresolved election has put the country’s political future in doubt and Western popular support for the war is being tested.

The Interior Ministry said two civilians were killed and six wounded, two of them seriously, in the airport attack. It did not say whether Western troops were hurt at the base. The NATO-led force was not immediately able to comment.
