A suicide car bombing in the Afghan capital Kabul on Saturday killed at least four people, an official confirmed.

Nusrat Rahimi, deputy spokesman for the Interior Ministry, told Andolu Agency three people, all civilians, were killed.

The suicide bomber was also killed in the attack.

Taliban spokesman, Zabihullah Mujahed, claimed responsibility for the attack in a statement.

The attack comes as the Afghan government has extended an olive branch to the Taliban by inviting them for peace talks.
