Taliban suicide bombers attacked the gates of the Afghan intelligence agency Wednesday, killing one person and wounding dozens in a blast that shredded nearby cars and shattered storefront windows three blocks away.
A Taliban suicide bomber posing as a messenger of peace blew himself up near Afghanistan's newly appointed intelligence chief on Thursday, seriously wounding him, officials said.
One intelligence service guard was killed in the blast, said agency spokesman Shafiqullah Tahiri.
Mr. Tahiri added that some of those injuries were minor, but four of the wounded were in critical condition.
