KABUL, Afghanistan (AA) - At least six people were killed Sunday by an apparent suicide attack on a voter registration center in the Afghan capital Kabul, according to officials.

Ministry of Public Health spokesman Waheed Majroh told local Tolo News that the death toll currently stands at six.

Humayon Mohtaat, head of the population census directorate, told Anadolu Agency that the attack took place in Dasht Barchi, western Kabul, outside the protected diplomatic and governmental "green zone."

Registration began last week for long-awaited local and parliamentary elections, set for October. President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani has called on the Taliban to take part in the polls, but the Taliban have warned people against participation.

This is the third attack in the last week against Afghanistan's voter registration process.
