A number of South Africans are believed to be amongst the foreigners killed in a suicide bomb attack in Kabul, Afghanistan.

Eyewitness News reports that up to eight South Africans are believed to be among the dead.

The Financial Times reported that the dead foreigners are understood to have been Russian and South African pilots working for an international courier company.

Attempts to reach the department of international relations and co-operation have been so far unsuccessful.
