At least one dead in Kabul blast


KABUL: The ministry of interior spokesman Najib Danish has confirmed a suicide bombing happened in Kabul’s PD 9 in Shashdarak area bordering the Green Zone on Saturday morning.

“Around 08:20 am local time a suicide bombing in Kabul in PD9, Shashdarak area killed one and wounded six others,” Danish said.

The identity of the deceased victim is not yet known.

The six wounded were transferred to a nearby hospital and two of them are in critical condition, Danish said.

No details were immediately given on the type of device used but unconfirmed reports indicate the bomber had been wearing an explosive vest.

This comes on the heels of the ministry’s recent launch of its new security plan for Kabul city which has seen a marked increase in road closures and checkpoints.
