The Taliban has claimed responsibility for a suicide attack early Monday morning in Kabul, killing at least 14 people on a minibus and wounding several others.
Police say the bomber approached the bus on foot and set off explosives.
Afghanistan's Interior Ministry says those killed were Nepalese security guards. Five other Nepalese nationals were wounded along with four Afghans.
Afghanistan's Chief Executive Abdullah Abdullah has condemned the violence as an "act of terror and intimidation."
The Taliban has also now claimed responsibility for a roadside bomb in Kabul Monday morning in which a provincial council member was wounded along with his two bodyguards.
NATO has condemned the attacks, saying "Horrific attacks like these show that, despite the Taliban's promises, they have a complete disregard for the lives of innocent civilians."
Elsewhere in Afghanistan, there are reports a suicide bomber riding an explosives-packed motorbike has blown himself up in a busy marketplace in northeastern Badakhshan province, killing at least eight people and wounding more than 40 others.
