Kabul (Web Desk): At least five people were killed in a suicide attack rocked the Afghan capital Kabul early Tuesday, officials said.
The ministry of defence confirmed the death toll but gave a smaller figure for the injured, saying at least six people were hurt in the attack.
No group immediately claimed responsibility for the attack, which comes after nearly three months of relative calm in the capital.
