The explosion follows a series of suicide attacks in the Afghan capital killing dozens and injuring hundreds more.

At least five people were killed Monday, when a suicide truck bomber struck near the entrance to the Kabul airport. The Taliban have claimed responsibility for the blast.

This is the latest incident in a series of suicide attacks in the capital of Afghanistan, which have killed dozens and injured hundreds more.

Security in Afghanistan has become fragile following the withdrawal of NATO forces in December 2014 and an ensuing spring offensive by militants, including the Taliban and the Islamic State (ISIL).

US-led NATO combat forces withdrew from Afghanistan in December 2014 after a 14-year occupation. On January 2, 2015, combat operations in the country gave way to a US training and support mission for the Afghan National Security Forces (ANSF), dubbed Resolute Support.
