A suicide bomber blew himself up in the Afghan capital Kabul on Monday after joining a queue of people waiting to enter an office of the civil order police. Ten people were killed and 20 wounded, most of them civilians in Monday's suicide bomb attack outside the police station in a busy area of western Kabul, Afghan Deputy Interior Minister Ayub Salangi said in a Twitter post.
The blast was in the Dehmazang area in the west of the city.
The attack was the latest in a series to hit the Afghan capital this year as the Kabul government has pushed to revive a stalled peace process with the Taliban that broke down last year
Under a spate of attacks
The city was hit by a series of suicide attacks last month, including one that killed seven journalists from a private television station as the Taliban stepped up their campaign against the Western-backed government.
The Afghan National Civil Order Police was set up as a gendarmerie-style unit to control riots and urban disorder but have also been used in counterinsurgency roles against the Taliban.
