Explosion injures two people



The Taliban’s office of the chief of police in Kabul has reported an explosion in Kabul’s 11th district, confirming that at least two persons were wounded in the incident, according to initial reports.

The explosion was caused by explosives planted on a bicycle on the Maryam High School (Laisa-e-Maryam) road, according to Khalid Zadran, the spokesman for Kabul Police.

He said two civilian bystanders were injured in the explosion and that no further information was available. There has been no claim of responsibility for the explosion by any group or individual.

Explosions in the capital and provinces have increased dramatically, killing scores of people, including 22 children. The ISIL claimed responsibility for the series of explosions in Mazar-e-Sharif, which resulted in many civilian fatalities.

The ISIL claimed responsibility for the attacks in Mazar-e-Sharif, through to the Aamaq News Agency, which frequently broadcasts ISIL-related propaganda and activity. The Taliban, on the other hand, disputes that there has been a rise in insecurity.—Khaama News Press Agency
