A senior Kabul police officer confirmed that three people were wounded in the attack.

No one has claimed responsibility, but Taliban insurgents frequently use roadside bomb and suicide attacks to target government officials as well as Afghan security forces across the country.

Last week, another member of parliament was targeted by a suicide bomber who killed seven people, Reuters reported.
