Acceptance A roadside bomb exploded on a busy street in the Afghan capital, Kabul, on Monday, injuring two people, police said.
The bomb exploded while a taxi was passing in the Kota-e-Sanji district, west of Kabul. A Taliban spokesman for the Kabul police, who goes by the name of Wahid Mobin, said two people were wounded. Witnesses said one of them was a woman in the taxi and the other was passing by.
The explosion came two days after a bomb exploded in a minibus in another part of western Kabul, killing at least one person and wounding five others. Colleagues identified the dead man as Hamid Seghani, a journalist working for Ariana TV.
No one has claimed responsibility for the two blasts. The Islamic State is waging a campaign of violence in Afghanistan targeting Taliban fighters and civilians, especially members of the Shiite-dominated Hazara ethnic group.
