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.

Officials said Asadullah Khalid was injured in the lower part of his body when the bomb detonated, but couldn't confirm if he was the target, the BBC reported.

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.
