Explosion in the Diplomatic Quarter of Kabul, there are Casualties

In Kabul, two rockets fired from the east of the Afghan capital. The media calls the accident a suicide attack. The unconfirmed initial reports suggested that 13 persons lost their lives after the attack in Wazir Akbar Khan district.

According to the Ministry of Defense, which has an office in 14th Street, the explosion happened close to them but they said they were not the target.

"I was 100 metres away when the explosion happened and as I ran towards the site I saw several people lying in blood - one had been hit in the head and was moving".


No individual or group has so far claimed responsibility behind the incident.

Over the weekend Taliban insurgents, some wearing night-vision goggles, killed 22 Afghan policemen in separate attacks on checkpoints.

Last week a suicide bomber detonated his explosives-laden care near the Afghan military academy in the capital city, killing 15 cadets and wounding several others.
