Mohammadi later said that he and his family were safe following the "terrorist attack" on his residence. TOLOnews reported that some of his security guards had been injured in the incident.
The country's interior ministry announced that at least eight people were killed and over 20 wounded in the car bomb blast near Mohammadi's residence.
The attack came as the Taliban has ramped up fighting against US-backed government forces in a campaign to seize control of Afghanistan as the American forces complete their withdrawal after 20 years of war. The insurgent group claims it controls over 85 percent of the country's territory, as well as 90 percent of the border areas. The Afghan government has dismissed these claims as propaganda.
*The Taliban is a terrorist group banned in Russia.
