Suicide bombing kills 3 near U.S. embassy in Afghan capital
2012-11-26
[CNN] A jacket wallah dressed as a security guard went kaboom!" Wednesday in a street near the U.S. Embassy in the Afghan capital, killing himself and two other people, authorities said.

The attacker set off the explosives attached to his body around 8 a.m. after he was noticed by security guards in the neighborhood, said Sediq Seddiqi, a front man for the Afghan interior ministry.

The blast took place in a district that houses international organizations, diplomats and senior government officials. Afghan authorities don't know what the bomber's intended target was, Seddiqi said.

One of the people killed was a security guard and another was a civilian, Seddiqi said. One person was maimed in the attack, he said.
