A bulk distribution of capital (5)


I believe the answer is:


'capital' is the definition.
(capital of Afghanistan)

'a bulk distribution' is the wordplay.
'distribution' indicates an anagram.
'abulk' with letters rearranged gives 'KABUL'.

'of' acts as a link.

(Other definitions for kabul that I've seen before include "Middle Eastern capital" , "Afghan city" , "Move through water" , "city abroad" , "Capital city of Afghanistan" .)

I've seen this clue in the Evening Standard.
