KABUL, Afghanistan, Aug. 11 (UPI) -- The Taliban claimed responsibility for a suicide bombing in Kabul Sunday that targeted a coalition convoy.

No coalition soldiers were injured in the attack but four civilians -- two women, a child, and a man -- were killed.

NATO's International Security Assistance Force is investigating.

Kabul police chief spokesman Hashmat Stanikzai said the suicide bomber, driving a Toyota Corolla, was targeting two heavily armed coalition vehicles near the Afghan Parliament.

The ministry of interior condemned the attack.
