April 12- At least five people were killed when a suicide bomber on foot carried out an attack in the capital, Kabul. The British, Canadian, Chinese, Turkish and Iranian embassies, as well as the Afghan Presidential Palace - are all in the area.
India's foreign minister said that the nation's embassy staff is all accounted for.
Additionally, the BBC said an Afghan driver had been killed, as was a technology worker with the ToloNews Afghan television channel.
The U.S Embassy and the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation mission in Kabul are also near, about a kilometer (half mile) away from the site.
Afghanistan's Ministry of Public Health has confirmed that almost 80 were killed and 350 others wounded in the Kabul blast.
"Such attacks do not change our resolve in continuing to support the Afghan government in the stabilization of the country", Gabriel said. The Taliban denied responsibility, and the Islamic State has yet to comment.
"The vigilance and courage of Afghan security forces prevented (it) from gaining entry to the Green Zone but the explosion caused civilian casualties in the vicinity", a statement said.
At least 80 people are dead after a bomb went off near the German Embassy in Kabul, Afghanistan. Bulgaria said its mission had been damaged and its staff evacuated. "We don't know at this moment what was the target", said Danish.
Germany's Interior Ministry says deportation of Afghans whose asylum requests have been rejected has been temporarily suspended in the wake of an attack in Kabul that seriously damaged the German Embassy.
Pentagon chief Jim Mattis has warned of "another tough year" for both foreign troops and local forces in Afghanistan.
Windows were shattered in shops, restaurants and other buildings up to a kilometer from the blast site.
Claimed by the Islamic State, the attack targeted Christians en route to St. Samuel the Confessor monastery in Minya, Egypt, and was the latest in a string of attacks against Coptic Christians in Egypt.
The troops could consist of special forces personnel and more conventional soldiers, and would be part of the NATO-led mission to train, advise and assist the Afghan army in its fight against militants.
