    A suicide bomber detonated explosives near Afghanistan's Independent Election Commission (IEC) headquarters in Kabul on Monday, injuring at least six people, officials said.

    The IEC spokesman says a staff vehicle was targeted and left at least four election officials and two policemen wounded.

    Last weekend, there was a string of similar attacks during the country's parliamentary elections.

    Voting was suspended by a week in Kandahar province after the Taliban killed a prominent police chief.
