Green Village is separate from the nearby Green Zone, a walled-off and heavily fortified part of Kabul that is home to several embassies including the US and British missions.
The toll from a massive blast claimed by the Taliban in Kabul has risen to 16 dead — all civilians — with scores more wounded, an official said Tuesday.
Monday night’s attack took place in a residential area near Green Village, a large compound that houses aid agencies and international organisations.
Interior ministry spokesman Nasrat Rahimi said the blast was caused by a tractor packed with explosives that had been parked alongside a wall by Green Village.
Residents in the area around Green Village were furious that their neighbourhood, which has been targeted before, had been hit once again and blamed the international presence.
Locals set tyres on fire, sending plumes of thick, acrid smoke into the morning sky, and closed off a main road alongside the scene of the attack.
