A suicide bomber blew himself up in front of Kabul's main airport Tuesday morning. Two people were killed and at least six others injured. Afghanistan's Interior Ministry says the victims were all civilians, but didn't mention if Western troops were hurt in the attack.

A NATO military base is near the airport, which is used by both soldiers and civilians. A Taliban spokesman says militants were responsible for the blast. This is the second attack in the capital in the last two days. Previously two rockets hit a residential area in the western part of Kabul leaving three civilians dead.
