Daily Trust - - INTERNATIONAL -

A con­voy of UK mil­i­tary ve­hi­cles has been at­tacked in the Afghan cap­i­tal Kabul, the UK’s Min­istry of De­fence has said.

The at­tack, which took place in a residential area near a mar­ket on Sun­day morn­ing, in­jured seven peo­ple.

There were no UK ca­su­al­ties, the MoD said, adding the con­voy had been struck by an im­pro­vised ex­plo­sive de­vice.

The Tal­iban claimed the at­tack in re­tal­i­a­tion for air strikes in Kun­duz which killed civil­ians and doc­tors.
