Must read

KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) – A bomb blast targeting a minibus in the Afghan capital on Monday injured at least 15 civilians, police said, amid attacks in Kabul.

Kabul police chief Ferdows Faramarz said the minibus was attacked in the Dahan-Bagh-Bagh district of Kabul and a nearby taxi was damaged.

He said the death toll could rise.

The attack comes a day after separate car bombings in western Kabul killed three people and wounded 12 others.

He said the first blast was aimed at a van or another car in another area. Faramarz said the investigation was ongoing, but that all the victims were civilians.

No one immediately claimed responsibility for Sunday’s attacks. Afghanistan is experiencing a nationwide shock of bombings, targeted killings and other acts of violence as peace talks continue in Qatar between the Taliban and the Afghan government.

The local branch of the Islamic State group has claimed responsibility for some of the violence, but many remain unanswered, with the government blaming the Taliban. The rebels have denied responsibility for most of the attacks.
