Two civilians Killed in Afghan Capital Blasts

At least two civilians were killed and four others received injuries in two blasts in the western part of Kabul, the capital city of Afghanistan on Friday, a Taliban official confirmed.

Taliban Interior Ministry Spokesman, Qari Sayed Khosti said that three civilians were wounded in the first blast that targeted a transport vehicle in Dasht-i-Barch district of the city.

A woman was injured in the second blast that happened in the same area, Khosti said, without giving further details.

No group has immediately claimed responsibility for the attack, but in the past Islamic State (IS), also known as Daesh terrorist group, took responsibility for subversive activities including bomb attacks.

Dasht-e-Barchi is largely populated by the mostly Shiite Hazara community, and is often attacked by the Daesh militants.

Two people were killed and five others were wounded after their minibuses were targeted again in Dasht-e-Barch district in November, and Daesh terrorist group claimed responsibility for it.
