Afghanistan: Major blast in Kabul, multiple casualties reported
At least four people were killed Saturday in a bomb attack against a minibus in Kabul, the capital of Afghanistan, police have learned.
The bomb placed in a minibus exploded in the early evening in an eastern district of Kabul, city police spokesman Khalid Zadran told.
No group has yet claimed responsibility for this attack.
The number of attacks has declined in the country since the Taliban took power in August 2021, but a series of deadly bomb attacks, in which dozens of people were killed, hit the country in late April, during the holy month of Ramadan, and also at the end of May.
Most were claimed by the jihadi organization Islamic State.
