(CNN) — A suicide attack in the Afghan capital, Kabul, on Wednesday killed five people and wounded 33 others, including at least four children, said Hashmat Stanikzai, Kabul’s police chief.
An explosive-laden car was detonated as a foreign embassy convoy was passing in the 9th District police zone, said Interior Ministry spokesman Sediq Sediqi.
The UK Foreign Office said two of those killed worked for the British Embassy.
One of the dead was a British national, a civilian security team member, and the second was an Afghan national working for the embassy, Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond said in a statement.
