British citizen among 5 killed in attack on UK embassy car

One British citizen was among five people killed in Thursday’s suicide attack on a British embassy vehicle in the Afghan capital, the interior ministry said in a statement. The other four killed in the blast were Afghans, the statement said. The explosion wounded 33 people. A suicide bomber riding a motorcycle struck the British embassy vehicle in Kabul. The Afghan Taliban, ousted from power by a US-led coalition in 2001, claimed responsibility for the attack, the latest in a wave of bombings to hit Kabul as the majority of foreign combat troops prepare to withdraw from the country.
