KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) -- A spokesman for an Afghan militant Islamist group says they carried out a suicide attack near Kabul airport that killed at least nine people in reprisal for an anti-Islam film that ridicules the Prophet Muhammad.
Haroon Zarghhon claimed responsibility for Tuesday's attack near Kabul airport in an email to The Associated Press. He said the attack was carried out by a 22-year-old woman named Fatima.
He is with the group called Hezb-e-Islami led by former warlord Gulbuddin Hekmatyar.
Police say a suicide bomber rammed a small sedan heavily laden with explosives into a mini-bus believed to be carrying foreign aviation workers to the airport at dawn.
