Four civilians were killed, and 17 people wounded, including a woman and a child[2]

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack in a crowded area outside an airport checkpoint, but a security official said it appeared to be aimed at two armored cars, although it was not clear who was in the vehicles.
