Atleast 3 killed, over 13 injured in Kabul blast
ISLAMABAD: An explosion in Afghanistan's capital has killed at least three people and wounded 13 others, a Taliban official said.
According to Khalid Zadran, Taliban-appointed spokesman for Kabul police chief, blast occurred in a restaurant in city's western Dehmazang neighbourhood. A team has arrived in area to find out cause of blast, he added. There was no immediate claim of responsibility for blast. Regional affiliate of IS, known as Islamic State in Khorasan Province has increased attacks on masajid and minorities across country since Taliban seized power last August. IS, which emerged in eastern Afghanistan in 2014, is seen as greatest security challenge facing country's new Taliban rulers.
