KABUL: A suicide attacker with explosives strapped to his body blew himself up Saturday outside a military caterer in Kabul but caused no casualties, Afghanistan's interior ministry said.
The explosion took place east of the capital, close to a warehouse and supermarket run by Supreme Food Services, supplier of food to the foreign military, ministry spokesman Zemarai Bashary said.
"It was suicide attack and the suicide attacker detonated explosives strapped to his body," he said.
It was not immediately clear what the target of the attack had been, he said, adding the attacker, who was on foot, may have detonated prematurely.
The blast took place at the Kabul end of the road to Bagram air base, a huge NATO installation and until recently the biggest in the country, which is about 45 kilometres (30 miles) further north.
