At least four people including two members of the Islamic Emirate’s forces were wounded in a blast that took place near an electronic identity center in PD 13 of capital Kabul, a security official said.

Abdul Rahman Nafay, commander of PD13, told TOLOnews that the blast was due to explosives placed in a motorcycle.

He said that three perpetrators have been arrested in connection with the incident and an investigation is underway.

“The blast happened near the identity center, where the woman and children came to get identity cards. There was no military there. They set up a magnetic bomb on the motorcycle,” Nafay said.

A TOLOnews reporter who visited the explosion scene in Kabul’s Pol-e-Sukhta area, said that the explosives were put in a pot on the side of the road.

It has been reported that security forces were not harmed in the explosion.

Meanwhile, Kabul security department spokesman Khalid Zadran said on Twitter that two people were killed and 22 others were wounded in the blast that took place this afternoon in the Pul-e-Sokhta area of Kabul.

Saturday’s explosion took place relatively close to yesterday’s blast.

According to the Kabul Security Command, the explosion on Friday in the Sarkariz area killed eight people and eighteen people were injured.

Daesh has claimed responsibility for Friday’s blast.
