Suicide Bomber Kills Three Near Kabul Cricket Stadium

A suicide bomber killed three people including a policeman and wounded five others after blowing himself up near a cricket stadium in the Afghan capital Kabul.

The attacker detonated the bomb after he was stopped at a security checkpoint as he walked towards the stadium where a match was under way. Two of the wounded were police officers.

Several ambulances were seen speeding away from the scene, apparently taking the injured to hospital.
