Spanish Embassy in Kabul rocked by explosion

An initial report indicates that a car exploded in the Sherpoor area of Kabul, Afghan Interior Ministry spokesman Sediq Sediqqi said on Twitter.

As news of the explosion spread, an aid organization said that the Spanish Embassy in Kabul had been attacked. The group -- an Italian aid organization named Emergency -- did not elaborate on the attack, and it wasn't immediately clear whether it was referring to the explosion.

The Italian aid group, which runs a hospital about 700 meters away from the embassy, said it received seven Afghan patients after the unspecified attack.

Gunshots could be heard after the blast, said journalist Sune Rasmussen, who was near the area.
