A suicide bomber on a motorbike attacked a British embassy vehicle in Kabul on Thursday, officials said, wounding some foreigners in the latest of a series of strikes in the Afghan capital.

The huge blast could be heard across Kabul and a plume of smoke rose high into the air above the attack site on the Jalalabad road, a main route that houses many foreign compounds and military facilities.

“A British embassy vehicle was attacked. There are some injuries. We are working with Afghan authorities,” a spokesman for the British embassy in Kabul told AFP.
