A suicide bombing in the Afghan capital Kabul has killed at least six civilians Thursday (May 16). Police said the blast took place in the industrial zone of Kabul at around 8 a.m. (0330 GMT). Sirens could be heard after the attack. Kabul police added that the suicide bomber was driving a Toyota Corolla targeting a convoy of foreign troops. NATO's International Security Assistance Force said it was looking into reports of ISAF casualties. The last suicide bomb attack in Kabul was in March, when a man blew himself up at a Defence Ministry gate, killing nine Afghans, during a visit by U.S. Defence Secretary Chuck Hagel.
