A California man was among those killed in a powerful truck bomb attack against a heavily fortified foreign compound in Kabul this week, according to report.

The Taliban have claimed responsibility for the bomb which detonated near the Green Village compound in east Kabul on Monday.

Health Ministry spokesman said at least four people were killed and 114 wounded.

On Wednesday an official at the U.S. embassy in Kabul said an American citizen was among the fatalities, but gave no further information, according to CBS news.

The slain American identified as 55-year-old Manoharan “Paul” Kamaleson, of Arcadia.

Kamaleson was the chief operating officer of The First MicroFinance Bank in Afghanistan, and was doing development work in the country alongside non-governmental organizations.

Earlier, the Indian embassy also reported that an Indian national was among those killed in the terror attack in Kabul.
