7 dead, 20 injured in Kabul bus explosion: Police


Tragedy struck the Afghan capital on Tuesday as an explosion on a bus claimed the lives of seven individuals while leaving 20 others injured, according to the Kabul police.

Khalid Zadran, the police spokesman in Kabul, disclosed that the blast took place within the Dasht-e-Barchi neighborhood, a region historically inhabited by the Shiite Hazara community.

“An explosion occurred in a bus carrying civilian passengers in the Dasht-e-Barchi area of Kabul, unfortunately seven of our compatriots were martyred and 20 others were injured,” shared Zadran in a social media post.

Security forces were promptly dispatched to the scene to initiate an investigation into the incident.

It’s worth noting that a deadly explosion had occurred in the same neighborhood in late October, affecting a sports club. This prior incident was attributed to the Islamic State group, resulting in four casualties and seven injuries.

Since the Taliban assumed control of the country and ceased their insurgency in August 2021, following the ousting of the US-backed government, the number of bomb blasts and suicide attacks has notably decreased.
