At least three soldiers and two civilians were killed on Tuesday morning when a suicide bomber detonated explosives outside a military academy in the Afghan capital, police sources told The National.

The blast wounded a further 12 people, the sources said.

The attack took place at the entrance gate of the government-run Marshal Fahim National Defence University in the west of the capital.

So far, no group has claimed responsibility for the attack.

Bombings in Kabul are common despite talks between the US and the Taliban insurgent group to end America's longest war.

The Taliban controls almost half of the country nearly 20 years after they were forced from power in the US-led invasion. However, there are also numerous other extremist and militant groups operating in the country that carry out attacks, including ISIS.

On January 31, two militants were killed when the explosives they were transporting in a hand cart accidentlly detonated.
