A car bomb targeted an international aid organisation in an upscale area of Kabul, the Afghan capital on Wednesday, the third day of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, sending a plume of smoke and dust into the sky, security officials said.

The attack targeted the office of non-profit Counterpart International in the Shahr Naw area of Kabul, they added.

A health ministry spokesman, Wahidullah Mayar, said nine wounded people had been taken to hospital.
