(Ahlul Bayt News Agency) - Taliban claim US President Barack Obama was the target of the triple bomb explosions that have rocked the Afghan capital.
Witnesses say a car bomb exploded in front of a foreign guesthouse near Kabul's main airport early Wednesday. At least two people including a US-led soldier were wounded during the attack.
At the same time, the US embassy warned its staff to "take cover, move away from the windows” after at least two other explosions were heard in the eastern part of the capital.
The blasts occurred only hours after Obama ended a short visit to Afghanistan where he signed an agreement with Afghan President Hamid Karzai to extend the US presence in the war-torn country to another decade beyond 2014.
Taliban said the US president was the target, and have vowed more attacks.
After signing the deal, Obama went to the US-run Bagram Air Base in eastern Afghanistan, met with US troops, and gave a televised speech before ending his surprise visit.
He said Washington was building enduring cooperation with Kabul to train Afghan forces to help them take full responsibility for security.
It was Obama's fourth visit to Afghanistan, his third as the commander-in-chief.
