Blast kills 4 at Afghan Interior Ministry compound

KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) - An official in Afghanistan says four police officers have been killed by a suicide bomber who attacked the Interior Ministry compound in the heart of Kabul.

Ministry of Interior spokesman Sediq Sediqqi said the bomber, who was wearing a military uniform to evade security checks, reached the entrance of the heavily fortified ministry compound Wednesday before detonating his explosives.

Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid claimed responsibility for the explosion. It came within hours of the latest Taliban message warning of more violence ahead of Saturday's presidential elections.
