Two persons were killed and three others injured in a blast that rocked Police District 17 of Afghan capital Kabul on Wednesday, spokesman of the Interior Ministry Abdul Nafi Takor said.
“A Toyota Corolla car, carrying explosive device, exploded in Police District 17 in today’s afternoon, killing two countrymen and injuring three others,” Nafi said on his Twitter account.
Without providing more details, the official said that security personnel had reached the area and initiated an investigation.
The blast coincided with the first anniversary of the withdrawal of the U.S.-led forces from Afghanistan.
The Taliban-run administration celebrated the first anniversary of the U.S. forces’ defeat and their pullout of Afghanistan on Wednesday in the former U.S. main military base Bagram, where the administration displayed its military might by arranging a military parade.
