Suicide Car Slams on UK Embassy Vehicle, Kills 5; Taliban Assumes Blame for Afghan Terrorist Attack

At least five people were killed today (November 27, 2014) when a suicide bomber slammed a car packed with explosives into a vehicle belonging to the British embassy in the capital of Afghanistan, according to the Telegraph (British) website.

At least 37 civilians -- including several children -- were injured in the explosion that rocked east Kabul this morning, pelting nearby buildings with debris and sending a thick column of smoke rising into the air.

The Taliban quickly claimed responsibility for the attack.

In a statement, Afghanistan's government confirmed the deaths of at least five people and criticized the Taliban's "inhuman act."
