Suicide bomb in Afghan capital kills 3 civilians

An Afghan official says a suicide bombing has killed three civilians in eastern Kabul and wounded several others more.
Sunday's blast comes two days before an international conference in Kabul hosting representatives from about 60 nations.
Police official Abdul Ghafor Sayedzada says the bomber was on foot and his target was unclear. Other officials said earlier that the attacker was on a bicycle.
Public health official Kabir Amiri says two hospitals have reported three civilians killed, including a child, plus 23 people wounded.
University student Tamim Ahmad says he saw a man on foot run up to a passing convoy of international troops and detonate an explosives-laden vest. However, Afghan authorities and NATO say no troops were operating in the area.
