An explosion tore through a supermarket popular with foreigners in the Afghan capital Kabul on Friday, killing at least three people and wounding three more, Reuters witnesses said.

The blast scattered debris across the street at the "Finest" supermarket several hundred yards from the British embassy and other diplomatic residences in Kabul.

A Reuters cameraman saw three dead bodies at the scene, including two women. Another three people were wounded, including a woman who appeared to be a foreigner. Fire blazed inside the building located on a busy roundabout.

It was not immediately clear what caused the explosion.
