Nineteen people were killed when a pedestrian suicide bomber detonated his explosives at the gate of the Afghan Supreme Court in eastern Kabul on Tuesday afternoon, officials said. 

"Forty-one wounded others were transported to hospitals by the Kabul ambulance," Wahidullah Majroh, a spokesman for the Afghan Health Ministry said. 

Najib Danish, a spokesman for the Interior Ministry, however, said that 12 people were killed and 10 others, all civilians, were wounded in the bombing. 

No group, including the Taliban, has claimed responsibility for the attack yet.
