    Afghan official: Strong explosion shakes city, possible attack

    A strong explosion took place early Monday near a guesthouse for foreigners in Kabul, an Afghan police official said.

    It was not immediately clear what caused the blast, which shook much of the capital at 1:25 a.m. on Monday. It was followed by widespread power outages.

    Gul Agha Rohani, Kabul's deputy chief of police, said the explosion happened east of the city's international airport.

    Rohani named the Northgate Hotel, which houses international contractors, without further details.

    Monday's blast follows a suicide attack on a peaceful demonstration on July 23 that killed more than 80 people and wounded hundreds.

    That attack was claimed by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), its first in the Afghan capital and the biggest in Kabul since the Taliban launched their insurgency in 2001.
