A BOMB blast targeted NATO forces in Kabul, Afghan capital, on Tuesday July 7, 2015, a spokesman for the coalition told AFP, as the Taliban step up attacks as part of their annual summer offensive.

Najib Danish, the deputy spokesman for the Interior Ministry said the explosion in the southeastern part of the Afghan capital may have been a suicide attack.

No details were immediately available on casualties.

A police spokesperson reported that there was an explosion and gunfire heard in an eastern part of the city.

“We have reports that insurgents have entered a building,” police spokesman, Ebadullah Karimi, said, adding it was close to an installation used by Afghanistan’s intelligence agency.
