Afghanistan – Several people were killed and more than 30 others wounded after a massive car bomb explosion ripped through a busy neighborhood at the western side of Afghanistan’s capital of Kabul on Wednesday, a witness said.
“We heard a huge blast outside a district police station near Shahid Mazari Square. The whole place has now been sealed off,” witness Shir Mohammad told Xinhua. The huge blast occurred roughly at 9:00 a.m. local time, and was immediately followed by an attack by several militants.
“The nature of the incident seems to be a complex attack against the police headquarters of Police District 6. The blast also caused massive destruction,” the witness added.
No group has claimed responsibility for the attack yet. A thick black smoke was seen rising above the site. Rescue teams, police and security forces rushed to the site and shifted the wounded to the hospitals. Public health officials confirmed that 34 wounded were admitted to multiple hospitals after the blast. Enditem
