One Killed As Blast Targets University Students In Kabul

Three IED blasts rocked Kabul city early on Sunday morning as the residents are witnessing an increase in violence over the past month.

The first blast targeted a bus carrying students of the education university and killed one shopkeeper and wounded at least 17 others, said Nusrat Rahimi, a spokesman for Ministry of Interior Affairs.

Rahimi said the first blast occurred in Silo Road in Kabul's PD5 at around 7:50 am local time.

Eyewitnesses said most of the victims in the first blast were the passerby and university students.

The person who was killed in the first blast was a young boy who newly joined a motorbike repair shop only four days ago.

Two journalists, one from Kilid Radio and a freelance reporter, were wounded in the first blast, eyewitnesses said.  

Rahimi said that two other blasts also occurred in the same area and all three blasts were from magnetic IEDs.

Five security force members were wounded in the second blast which was due to an embedded IED bomb placed on a bike near the first blast's scene, Rahimi said. 

He said that the second blast happened almost 20 minutes after the first explosion. 

Wahidullah Mayar, a spokesman for Ministry of Public Health, said two people were killed and 24 others were wounded in the blasts.

Daesh claimed responsibility for the blasts.
