A car bombing attack on a foreign convoy in Afghan capital killed at least one person Tuesday morning, police said.

A local policeman told Xinhua that the blast occurred when a mini-bus was approaching a foreign military convoy in Wazir Akbar Khan of central Kabul.

Meanwhile, Afghan interior ministry spokesman Zamari Bashari confirmed to Xinhua that the attack targeted foreign troops.

The explosion site was located on a road just behind Pakistani embassy in Afghanistan.

Xinhua reporters on the spot saw parts of damaged roadside walls, a destroyed white car, and even some body parts which have turned black.

Scores of policemen have cordoned off the area.

There has been no confirmation about the casualties yet.

Earlier on Sunday, a Taliban suicide attack, in Paghman district, 20 km west of Kabul city, killed 10 people including one NATO soldier and nine civilians.

Militancy and violence have claimed the lives of more than 5,800 people so far this year in Afghanistan.
