Suicide Bomber Targets European Police in Kabul
A suicide car bomber has targeted a European Union police vehicle in Kabul, killing one passer-by but not hurting any of the passengers. However, five people nearby were wounded.
The Taliban has claimed responsibility for the attack.
The European police training mission said the bomber struck near its headquarters on the eastern outskirts of Kabul Monday afternoon.
Kabul has been hit by a high number of attacks in recent weeks as Taliban insurgents target government, military and foreign installations.
The attacks come as Afghan troops are taking full responsibility for the nation's security, marking the formal end to a 13-year combat mission in Afghanistan by the United States and NATO that targeted Taliban insurgents.
Suicide Bomber Kills 2 Saudi Border Guards
Saudi officials say a suicide bomber has killed two border guards and wounded a third in an attack near the Iraqi border.
The Interior Ministry said the attack early Monday in Arar began with the bomber and another "terrorist" shooting at a border patrol. The guards returned fire, killing one person. The bomber detonated his explosives.
There was no immediate claim of responsibility.
Saudi Arabia has been taking part in the U.S.-led coalition carrying out airstrikes against the Islamic State group in Syria.
Since late September, U.S. and Saudi forces, along with those from Jordan, Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates, have conducted more than 600 airstrikes targeting the militants who took over large areas in Syria and Iraq.
