9 are dead in Kandahar, Afghanistan after suicide bomber on a motorbike blew himself up at an intelligence office, according to the Huffington Post.

Included in the 9 killed are four Afghan intelligence officers, a coalition service member and a civilian employee working for the coalition.

Spokesman Qari Yousef claimed in a text message to reporters that the Taliban is to be named responsible for the attack because they were targeting international forces operating in Afghanistan.

Violence has spiked in southern Afghanistan, according to Dawn.com, with a roadside bomb occurring earlier Saturday, as well as a 12-year-old boy and 10-year-old girl who were injured Friday after stepping on a bomb.
