 At least fourteen people were killed and another 12 injured in Afghan capital Kabul, when a suicide bomber targeted a mini bus carrying foreign guards on Monday morning.

The incident took place in the Banae district of the city. The injured and dead bodies were shifted to hospital, while identity of any victim could not be ascertained.
According to Afghan Police, the bus belonged to a logistics company while the dead included both Afghan and Nepalese security contractors.
No group, including Islamic State and Taliban, immediately claimed responsibility for the blast.
This blast is part of the latest Taliban threat surging since former Taliban chief Mullah Akhtar Mansour was killed in a US drone strike in Pakistan’s Balochistan province last month.
Issuing his first ever audio message after assuming power as new Taliban chief, Mullah Haibatullah Akhundzai had announced to avenge the death of his predecessor.
