Car bomb targets U.S. convoy in Afghan capital

A car bomb targeting a U.S. convoy exploded in the Afghan capital on Friday (May 31) wounding four U.S. service members and causing a number of other casualties, officials said, in the second attack in the city in two days.

The Taliban claimed responsibility for the blast, which came a day after the Islamic State militant group claimed a suicide attack outside a military training academy that killed at least six people.

There were conflicting reports about the total number of casualties caused by the blast while a spokesman for U.S. Forces in Afghanistan said a car bomb hit a U.S. convoy and four service members had suffered minor injuries but gave no other details.

Mohammad Musa Zaher, a doctor, told Reuters that eight wounded people were taken to the Wazir Akbar Khan hospital and added that three of them were in critical condition.

Friday's attack, shortly before next week's Eid holiday, came as a delegation of Taliban officials met senior Afghan politicians in Moscow for discussions about a possible peace process to end 18 years of war in Afghanistan.
