Kabul, September 25: A car bomber struck a Danish convoy of a NATO-led military mission in Kabul on Sunday. Five people were injured in the attack, according to local officials. The Danish soldiers were part of a security team engaged in protecting advisers traveling to and from the Afghan military academy.
Bill Salvin, a spokesman for Nato's Resolute Support train and assist mission, confirmed the attack had targeted a military convoy.
"There are no Resolute Support casualties as a result of the explosion, and a team from Resolute Support is on the scene to recover the vehicle," Salvin said, adding that "there is no impact to Resolute Support operations".
In a statement on Twitter Sunday, Taliban insurgents claimed to have killed and injured up to 16 American soldiers in the attack. The militants routinely exaggerate claims.
On Sept 13, a suicide bomber killed three people including a policeman and wounded five others after blowing himself up near a cricket stadium in Kabul.
