A suicide attacker riding a motorcycle blew himself up inside Kabul’s heavily fortified diplomatic zone on Tuesday, killing at least four people and wounding 15, officials said.
It was the first attack targeting the Afghan capital’s so-called “Green Zone” since a massive truck bomb ripped through the area on May 31, killing or wounding hundreds.
“The suicide attack was carried out by an underage bomber, a boy we think 13 or 15 years old, killing at least four and wounding over a dozen more civilians,” interior ministry spokesman Najib Danish told AFP.
He added that the casualty toll could change.
A police spokesman said the attacker may have been as young as 12.
