The attack in the city's east early Tuesday happened outside the main gate of a compound housing foreigners, says Sediq Sediqqi, the spokesman for the Interior Ministry.
He says a small truck packed with explosives rammed the front gate of the compound. He says the dead were security guards.
The blast could be heard across the city soon after sunrise.
In the past week, suicide bombers have targeted the chief of police and a high-profile female parliamentarian.
It was a successful weekend hunt for numerous area kids who bagged their very first deer.
