Three suicide bombers killed at least nine civilians, most of the them children in a botched attack on the Indian consulate in Jalalabad, security officials said.
Police fired on the militants as they approached a checkpoint near the consulate, prompting one of them to set off their explosive-laden car. At least nine bystanders were killed, and another 24 people injured.
All three attackers also died.
