At least 20 dead after suicide bombing in Afghan capital

A Taliban-claimed suicide bombing in a busy pedestrian area in Afghanistan's capital Monday reportedly left at least 20 people dead and more than a dozen injured.

The area in western Kabul that was struck is home to the border police, traffic department and the Kabul Zoo and is usually full of civilian foot and vehicle traffic. The Afghan Interior Ministry said civilians were among the casualties.

Resolute Support, the U.S.-led military coalition in Afghanistan, cited reports saying that 20 Afghan police officers were killed in the bombing, 25 officers injured and seven Afghan civilians injured.
