Kabul twin roadside bombings

Twin roadside bombings leave 10 civilians dead and 12 wounded in Kabul

At least ten civilians lost their lives and 12 others wounded after two consecutive roadside bombs targeted public transport mini buses in PD3 of the capital Kabul on Tuesday evening, a security source said.      

Sayed Hamid Roshan, a deputy spokesperson for the Ministry of Interior, said the incidents took place yesterday evening around 7:15 and 8:15 PM, June 01.

The blasts went off in a rush hour when daily labors, workers were on their way to their homes.

No group claimed responsibility for the attacks.

A surge in violence against civilians is on the rise at a time when the US forces are leaving the country.

On May 08, a complex suicide bombing killed 90 people, mostly schoolgirls and wounded 240 others in the western neighborhood of Kabul. The Afghan government blamed the Taliban for the attack but the group denied responsibility.

On May 30, at least eight civilians including children, students and university teachers lost their lives in in two separate attacks in Kapisa and Charikar.
