Kabul, July 8 : A spokesman of the Government of Afghanistan today said that the bombing of the Indian embassy in Kabul had the hallmarks of a particular intelligence agency. "The sophistication of this attack and the kind of material that was used in it, the specific targeting, everything has the hallmarks of a particular intelligence agency that has conducted similar terrorist acts inside Afghanistan in the past. So we have sufficient evidence to say that," Presidential Palace spokesman Humayun Hamidzada told a news conference a day after an attack which killed 41 people.

A suicide car bomb killed two Indian diplomats and two Indian guards. Many of the victims were people queuing for visas and shoppers at a nearby market. It was the deadliest attack in Kabul since U.S.-led and Afghan forces overthrew the Taliban in 2001.

Pakistan has denied the Afghan accusations and strongly condemned Monday's attack.
