Two Killed in Multiple Kabul Bombings

At least two individuals, including a district police chief, were killed after several bomb explosions rocked the Afghan capital Kabul, officials said on Wednesday.

Ferdaws Faramarz, a spokesman for the police, said in a press release that two people were dead while another one sustained injury after getting hit by the blast while riding their vehicle in downtown Kabul.

According to interior ministry spokesman Tariq Arian, one of the individuals who got killed by the blast was a local police chief in the Afghan capital.

Faramarz told the reporters that another four people got wounded after another explosion ripped through the same district in Kabul.

Authorities said the third explosion targeted a police vehicle located in the Paghman district in the suburbs of Kabul. They are still uncertain whether the blasts were caused by the so-called “sticky bombs” attached to the vehicles, or roadside improvised incendiary devices.

Local officials said the recent waves of insurgence and violence in the Afghan capital follow a method of attacks that occur during morning rush-hour traffic, targeting prominent Afghan personalities that include politicians, journalists, activists and judges.

Wednesday’s explosions came a day after a group of armed individuals fatally shot four government workers during an ambush in Kabul.

No group has claimed responsibility for the aggressions as of the moment.
