At least 95 people were wounded when a car bomb exploded on August 7 outside a police station in Kabul, government officials said.
The Taliban claimed responsibility in a statement, saying that one of its suicide bombers carried out the attack, which had targeted a "recruitment center." However, it wasn't immediately clear if anyone was killed in the attack, which occurred in the western part of the Afghan capital during the morning rush hour. The device exploded when a vehicle stopped at a checkpoint outside the station, said Interior Ministry spokesman Nasrat Rahimi.
