– The provincial police chief Abdul Rahman
I am aware of a suicide attack on French troops in Kapisa but I don't know the number of casualties.
The provincial police chief Abdul Rahman added that it occurred in Nijrab district of the mountainous province. The Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack.
Violence has surged across Afghanistan in recent weeks with the Taliban vowing to target the Afghan government and security forces, as well as the 130,000 foreign troops in the country, most of whom are due to leave by the end of 2014.
