At least one person was killed and 11 people were wounded when a suicide bomber targeted a French restaurant in Kabul late Friday afternoon, according to Sediq Sediqqi, a spokesman for the Afghan Interior Ministry.
The official Twitter account of Kabul’s Emergency Hospital reported a 12-year-old boy was dead on arrival following the attack.
A suspect was arrested during the police search of the area after the explosion, Sediqqi told CNN. The bombing occurred at a French restaurant, Le Jardin, which is popular among expatriates.
Taliban spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid claimed responsibility for the attack, saying on his Twitter account that suicide attackers targeted a restaurant in Kabul owned by the “invaders.”
