Taliban spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid immediately emailed a statement to reporters in which he claimed a 28-year-old militant from the province of Logar, to the south of Kabul, was behind the attack.

However, Kabul's deputy police chief Daud Amin has claimed that eyewitnesses report seeing a teenage boy - of no more than 13 or 14-years-old - walking close to the site with a bag.

The blast comes as Afghans mark the 11th anniversary of the death of Ahmad Shah Massoud, the former commander of the Northern Alliance, who was killed by an al-Qaeda suicide bomber two days before the 9/11 attacks in 2001.
