Russian diplomats were killed along with several local residents in an explosion outside the Afghan embassy

Two Russian diplomats were killed along with several local residents in an explosion outside the Afghan embassy in the capital Kabul on Monday, the Russian Foreign Ministry said, adding that two employees of the diplomatic mission were killed, adding that the casualties were also among Afghan citizens. Afghan police said earlier that a suicide bomber detonated explosives near the entrance of the Russian embassy on Kabul’s Darulaman Road, adding that the attacker was shot dead by armed guards as he approached the gate.

The suicide bomber before reaching the target was recognized and shot dead by Russian embassy guards (Taliban)… there are no reports of casualties yet,” said Mawlawi Sabir, head of the police district where the attack took place. Deputy spokesman Bilal Karimi said the Afghan Taliban government was investigating the incident. Russia is one of the few countries to keep an embassy in Kabul after the Taliban took over the country more than a year ago. Although Moscow does not officially recognize the Taliban government, it has negotiated an agreement with officials on the supply of gasoline and other commodities.
