At least one police officer was killed and one officer was wounded on Monday after a suicide attacker detonated explosives.

The attack occurred near the office of Afghanistan's election commission in the capital, Kabul, where dozens of protesters had gathered, officials said.

The protesters had gathered in support of a parliamentary candidate who electoral officials had disqualified over his suspected links with "illegal armed groups".
