ISIS claims deadly explosion in Kabul


KABUL -- A powerful blast targeting an armoured NATO convoy in Kabul killed at least eight people and wounded 28 Wednesday (May 3), including three coalition members, officials said in an attack claimed by the "Islamic State of Iraq and Syria" (ISIS).

The explosion, which came during morning rush hour on a busy road, killed "mostly" civilians, an Interior Ministry spokesman told AFP without giving a breakdown.

NATO said three coalition service members had received "non-life threatening wounds" in the attack.

NATO did not disclose the three troops' nationalities.

ISIS took responsibility for the blast via its media outlet Amaq.
