KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — Afghan officials say a suicide bomber has attacked a bus carrying Afghan soldiers to work in the capital, wounding seven people.

The Kabul police chief's office says in a statement that the early morning blast in western Kabul came from a man on foot wearing a suicide vest who detonated his explosives as he approached the bus. Six of those wounded were soldiers and the seventh was a civilian. Spokesmen for the Defense Ministry and the Interior Ministry said no one was killed in the blast.

An Associated Press reporter at the site saw the bus damaged on one side. It appeared that the bomber had not entered the bus but blew himself up next to the vehicle.
