Explosion at Russian Embassy in Kabul kills 2, injures 11

The Taliban's interior ministry in Afghanistan says an apparent suicide attack on Monday in front of the Russian Embassy in the capital Kabul killed two people and injured 11 others.

The ministry says many people had gathered at the embassy to apply for visas when a man approached and blew himself up.

No one has claimed responsibility for the attack.

The ministry has cordoned off the area and launched an investigation.
