KABUL, Afghanistan — Four people were killed when a suicide car bomb detonated at a perimeter wall of a camp housing foreign contractors in the Afghan capital on Tuesday morning, allowing militants to enter the compound, a senior security source told NBC News. Both militants and two Afghan guards were killed.

There were no casualties among military personnel or foreign contractors at the site, the source said. The blast was large enough to rattle windows several miles away in Kabul's central diplomatic district, Reuters reported.
