    Afghanistan: Suicide attack in Kabul leaves five dead

    Feb 1, Kabul: At least five people were killed when when a suicide bomber blew himself up trying to enter a police building in Afghanistan's capital Kabul, police and witnesses said.

    Several bodies were strewn around the area after the attack, a photographer with the AFP news agency reported from the scene.

    Ambulances rushed to the scene of what was described by witnessed as a powerful blast, Al Jazeera reported.

    Kabul was hit by a series of suicide attacks last month, including one that killed seven journalists from a private television station, as the Taliban stepped up its campaign against the Western-backed government.

    The attacks coincided with renewed efforts to revive a peace process with the armed group that stalled last year.
