A suicide bomber attacked the Indian consulate in the eastern Afghan capital of Jalalabad on Saturday, Indian officials and local police said, killing six people and wounding 22.
Gunfire resounded through the area for at least an hour following the 10 a.m. blast near the consulate entrance.
All the casualties were civilians, except for one wounded Afghan soldier, said Baz Mohammad, a senior health official in Nangarhar province.
The attack followed a world-wide travel alert issued by the United States on Friday, saying that Al Qaeda could be planning attacks in August, particularly in the Middle East and North Africa.
The United States has ordered the closure of 21 embassies and consulates on Sunday, including its Kabul mission.
