A Taliban suicide car bomber has detonated explosives near to a compound for foreign security contractors in the Afghan capital Kabul, officials said.  At least three civilians were killed and two others wounded, with no casualties among the security contractors, when the bomb exploded in Kabul’s Police District Nine, interior ministry spokesperson Najid Danish told Al Jazeera. The Taliban immediately claimed responsibility for the attack, which occurred during Saturday morning rush hour. The attack comes days after General John Nicholson, the top US commander in Afghanistan, said that the security of the country would be “the main effort” for international forces helping Afghan security forces.
