Civilian killed in Kabul explosion, police say

KABUL (Pajhwok): At least one civilian was killed on Tuesday morning when a magnetic bomb hit a vehicle in Kabul. An official said.

The bombing took place near the Ghazni bust stop in the 5th police district of Kabul at around 11:00am, a police spokesman said.

Firdos Faramarz said the incident was being investigated. No group has so far claimed responsibility for the blast.

A day earlier, a Land Cruiser belonging to Afghan staffers at the Italian embassy in Kabul was targeted in an explosion in the Parwan 2 area of Kabul.

Over the past three months, news reports suggest, Jan. 24 was the only day that did not witness an explosion in the capital.
