A suicide bomber has killed five people near a military academy in the Afghan capital, Kabul on Tuesday.
There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack near the entrance to the government-run defense university, the Marshal Fahim Military Academy, at the beginning of the morning rush hour.
Interior ministry spokesman Nasrat Rahimi said five including three military personnel and two civilians were killed. Similarly, 12 people including five civilians have been wounded.
Militant attacks on the Afghan and U.S.-led security forces have continued over recent months even as the United States and Taliban militants pursue talks to finalize a peace pact.
