MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Two civilians were injured in a blast that occurred Monday in the area close to the US Embassy in the Afghan capital of Kabul, local media reported, citing the head of Kabul criminal investigation department.
"Two civilians were wounded in the blast. No soldier was not hurt in the attack," Fraidoon Obaidi said as quoted by the TOLO news broadcaster.
None of the militant groups active in Afghanistan have claimed responsibility for the blast so far, the media reported.
Afghanistan is in a state of political and social turmoil, fighting the continuing Taliban insurgency, with other extremist groups, such as the Daesh (outlawed in Russia), expanding their activities in the country as well.
