Bomb blast in Afganistan
Bombings in Afghanistan have long been a daily occurrence. However, the number of attacks has risen sharply since the United States recently announced its withdrawal. A bomb blast near the southern city of Zabul has killed at least 11 people. Another 28 people were injured.

Gul Islam Sial, a spokesman for the provincial governor, said the casualties occurred when a roadside bomb exploded. Several women and children were among the injured.

No group or individual has claimed responsibility for the attack. The Taliban insurgents did not comment.

Meanwhile, a bomb blast on a minibus in Afghanistan's Parwan province on Monday, May 10 in the morning killed two more and injured at least nine others.

The country's interior ministry has confirmed the information.

The United States recently announced the withdrawal of all troops from Afghanistan by September 11, after nearly 20 years of peacekeeping operations. Since then, the Asian country has seen a sharp rise in attacks and violence.

However, the Taliban announced on Sunday that they would observe a three-day ceasefire this week on the occasion of Eid al-Fitr.

But two days before the announcement, a bomb blast near a school in Kabul killed at least 68 people and injured 165 others. Most of them were schoolgirls.
