Kabul, Sep 8 (ANI): At least two civilians were killed and six others were injured when a suicide car bomb exploded near Kabul's military airport on Tuesday.

The windows of the city center were rattled due to the blast.

The car bomber rammed the main gate of the airport's military base and exploded, reports BBC quoting the Afghanistans's interior ministry sources as saying.

According to an eyewitness, the car bomb exploded near a NATO military convoy.

NATO-led alliance forces fighting the Taliban militia have an Air Force base at the Kabul airport, which is used for both civilian and military purposes.

The BBC also said that there were unconfirmed reports that members of Nato's International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) were among the casualties.

"It was a suicide attack outside the main gate of the military base at the airport," Nato officer Colonel Koziel Bart said.

The airport has been targeted in the past by suspected Taliban militants - in 2007, killing one civilian.

Tuesday's attack follows a massive suicide car bomb last month on ISAF's Kabul headquarters that killed seven Afghan civilians on the spot. (ANI)
