Kabul, May 3 (IBNS) : At least eight civilians were killed and three foreign troops along with 25 civilians were wounded in a suicide attack in capital Kabul on Tuesday, Afghanistan's state-run news agency Khaama Press reported.

US Navy Captain William K. Salvin, spokesman for the US Forces-Afghanistan, said a coalition MRAP convoy was targeted by an improvised explosive device in Kabul this morning about 8 am.


He said three coalition service members were wounded. All sustained non-life threatening wounds, are in stable condition, and are currently being treated at coalition medical facilities.


The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) terrorist group offshoot in Afghanistan, ISIS-Khurasan, claimed responsibility for  the deadly attack, the report said.


The group in a statement released in Arabic language claimed that 8 American soldiers were killed in the attack.


The incident took place in the vicinity of the 9th police district of the city close to Abdul Haq Square after a suicide bomber detonated his explosives close to the convoy of the foreign forces.


The attack has been carried out days after the Taliban group announced its spring offensive and vowed to carry out more attacks across the country.
