SEVEN people have been injured in an attack on UK military vehicles on Sunday October 11 according to the UK´s Ministry of Defence.

The British convoy was on patrol in a residential area close to a market in Kabul, Afghanistan´s capital.

The vehicles were targeted by a blast caused either by an improvised explosive device or a suicide bombing, however, there were no British casualties.

The Taliban have claimed responsibility for the attack. Officials in Kabul have said it was a suicide bombing while the UK Ministry of Defence (MoD) says it was an IED. In a statement they said, “We can confirm that at approximately 9.10 this morning a convoy of UK military vehicles on a routine road move as part of NATO Resolute Support Mission in Kabul was struck by an Improvised Explosive Device. There were no UK casualties.”

The Taliban launched an assault in Kunduz in September, and in August a suicide bomber killed five people at the entrance to the international airport in Kabul.
