KABUL (AP) — A large blast has sounded in the center of Afghanistan's capital. Associated Press reporters heard the explosion and saw a plume of smoke rising from a site in downtown Kabul.

Further details were not immediately available.

The Afghan capital has been hit several times in recent months by suicide bombers and roadside bombs. The attacks usually target international military forces or government installations, but Afghan businesses and civilians are also often killed or injured.
