A Monday suicide attack in Kabul, Afghanistan, killed 40 people and injured 29 others, the health ministry said Tuesday. At least three gunmen stormed a public welfare building after another attacker detonated an explosives-laden vehicle outside. The gunmen held the building for eight hours against security forces. Some employees barricaded themselves inside while police evacuated more than 350 others. No group has claimed responsibility the attack. A second suicide bomber killed six people in Kandahar, Afghanistan, on Tuesday.
