"We are still investigating the precise nature of the blast, whether it was suicide attack, car bomb or whatever -- we do not know it at the moment," a senior official said.

This attack has come just nine days after 14 Nepali security guards were killed when a Taliban suicide bomber attacked them on June 20 while travelling in their Kabul minibus.

Nine other people were wounded, including five Nepalese and four Afghans.
