KABUL, Afghanistan, Dec. 6 (UPI) -- The chief of Afghanistan's intelligence service was wounded in a suspected suicide bombing in Kabul Thursday, Interior Ministry officials said.

The British broadcaster said attack occurred at one of the properties owned by Khalid, who is known for moving from residence to residence to avoid assassination attempts.
