    MOSCOW (Sputnik) - At least two people died and three more were wounded as a result of the explosion which hit Afghan capital on Saturday morning, the TOLO broadcaster reported.

    A suicide bomber detonated the bomb close to a compound housing foreign contractors at around 9 a.m. local time (04:30 GMT), the TOLO broadcaster reported.

    The attacker reportedly targeted a vehicle belonging to a private security company. The injured people were local civilians.

    Following the explosion, the Taliban movement claimed the responsibility for the incident.

    Afghanistan has long been suffering political, social and security-related instability because of the simmering insurgency, including that of the Taliban, Daesh and Daesh-affiliated groups.
