    Three others were killed in the Afghan capital when an improvised explosive devise detonated at a roundabout.

    Eight children between the ages of ten and 14 were killed after the head of the rocket they were playing with detonated on Tuesday. The kids found the discarded weapon and wrapped it in cloth and were throwing it when the incident occurred, local police chief Abdul Rahman Rahimi said, according to media reports.

    Also on Tuesday, a handmade pressure-cooker bomb detonated at a Kabul traffic circle, claiming the lives of three passersby, Interior Ministry spokesperson Sediq Sediqqi confirmed.

    No group has claimed responsibility for the explosion.
