Topic: Car bomb on EU vehicle kills at least three in Afghan capital


By Mirwais Harooni and Kay Johnson KABUL (Reuters) - A suicide car bomber rammed a European Union vehicle near the main airport in Afghanistan's capital on Sunday, killing at least three people in the latest attack in the city, officials said. The Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack on the European Union Police Mission in Afghanistan (EUPOL), which advises Afghan law enforcement authorities. EUPOL spokeswoman Sari Haukka-Konu confirmed that one of the mission's vehicles was hit by an explosion near Kabul airport. She said all the EUPOL personnel "are in a safe place" with non-fatal injuries, but another person traveling in the vehicle was killed.
