Claiming they were targeting a military convoy of the U.S.-led coalition, the Taliban on Monday took credit for a car bombing near Kabul International Airport, Afghanistan that killed at least one person and injured four others, reports CNN.
But Interior Ministry Spokesman Sediq Sediqqi said the dead and injured were all Afghan civilians.
Taliban insurgents have repeatedly launched attacks targeting the heavily fortified Kabul airport, part of which is used for military purposes.
In August, a deadly suicide bombing hit a checkpoint on the way to an airport entrance. Last year, gunmen stormed a nearby building in an effort to attack the military side of the airport.
At least 50 people were killed earlier this month in another attack by the Taliban at a market bazaar and a school near the airport in the southern city of Kandahar, the report says.
