The Taliban claimed responsibility for a large suicide car bomb that detonated on Saturday in the heart of the Afghan capital’s most secure neighborhood just five days before an election the Islamist group has vowed to disrupt.
Afghanistan’s Defense Ministry said at least four people were killed and 91 wounded in the blast, which hit outside the sprawling headquarters of the NATO-led international force, near the U.S. embassy, in Kabul.
