A suicide vehicle bomb early Friday morning struck a foreign troops' convoy in eastern Kabul, killing at least one civilian and wounding four more, according to the Afghan Interior Ministry. "The target of the attack was a foreign forces convoy", ministry spokesman Najib Danish told AFP, giving the toll and adding that police are investigating.
Ghani proposed a ceasefire and a release of prisoners as part of a range of options including new elections, involving the militants, and a constitutional review as part of a pact with the Taliban to end a conflict that previous year alone killed or wounded more than 10,000 Afghan civilians.
"It's no wonder that it has had a destabilizing effect on the entire region and only when there is a peaceful solution there can we achieve greater regional security", the Uzbek foreign minister said.
A six-year-old Afghan girl was reportedly killed in the attack. North Atlantic Treaty Organisation forces in Kabul confirmed the attack was a suicide auto bombing. It said no one from the embassy had been harmed, Reuters reports.
At the blast site in the Qabil Bay neighborhood, blood pooled on the pavement amid rubble in front of a destroyed building. They spoke on condition of anonymity, fearing for their own safety.
The recent attacks have underscored the weaknesses of Afghan security forces.
