Interior Ministry spokesman Najib Danish said another three people were wounded in the attack, adding that the exact target was unclear.

Monday's rush-hour attack occurred outside the main entrance to the security compound.

The victims included women whose vehicle was going past the area at the time of the blast, reports said.

The blast comes a week after Daesh claimed another attack on a training facility of the same agency, the National Directorate for Security, in Kabul that ended when the attackers were killed before causing significant casualties.

No group has claimed responsibility for the attack as of now. Two assailants were killed.

Six other policemen were wounded in the incident which took place in Marjah district late Sunday afternoon, added Zwak.

There was no initial claim of responsibility.

During 2017, Kabul endured more than 20 large attacks with heavy losses of life.

Gabriel, referring to Afghanistan, said Berlin wanted to show that "we stand by the city but also the complete country".

A suicide attacker on foot blew himself up near a compound belonging to the Afghan intelligence agency in Kabul on Monday, killing six civilians, officials said.
