    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — At least 10 people were killed and seven injured in an explosion that occurred in eastern Kabul province, local media reported Wednesday, citing Interior Ministry spokesman Najib Danish.

    According to Danish, the bomb attack took place in Kabul’s 5th police district and targeted a vehicle carrying Maidan Wardak province’s appellate court employees, Khaama Press news agency reported.

    No group has claimed responsibility for the attack, which Danish confirmed was carried out by a suicide bomber, the media reported.

    Afghanistan is struggling with political, social and security instability, as the Taliban movement and other radical extremist organizations such as the Islamic State, which is prohibited in many countries, including the United States and Russia, have expanded their activities in the country.
