- Police main: Youngsters wrapped up a rocket tip with cloth and threw it seven died
- Strain-cooker bomb kills a few at a Kabul roundabout, formal suggests
The latter incident was the deadliest, killing seven young children between ages ten and 14 and wounding two others, Kabul police Main Abdul Rahman Rahimi explained. They had been playing with the head of the rocket, which had been left behind a lengthy time back — wrapping it up in a fabric and throwing it — when it went off, according to the main.
In other places in Kabul, a few people died when a stress-cooker explosive detonated in close proximity to a roundabout, Interior Ministry spokesman Sediq Sediqqi explained.
Seddiqi also mentioned that Afghan political analyst Ahmad Saeed was rushed to a healthcare facility soon after unfamiliar gunmen shot him Tuesday afternoon in the volatile Asian nation’s capital.
It was not quickly very clear who was behind the bombing or shooting.
Violence has plagued Afghanistan for years, pitting the authorities and its allies in opposition to the Taliban, the extremist group that led the country before the U.S.-led assault following the September 11, 2001, assaults.
