Kabul: Over 20 killed in car bomb explosion

July 24, 2017 10:14 IST

A car bomb exploded in western Kabul on Monday, killing ‘more than 20 people’, local Afghan media reported on Monday.

‘More than 20 people were killed in explosion in Gulaee Dawa Khana area in PD3,’ reports ToLo News.

Police said there were no details yet about the target.

The neighbourhood is home to many Shiite Hazaras, a persecuted ethnic minority which was hit hard just a year ago in a strike which killed dozens -- in the first attack claimed by the Islamic State group in the heart of Kabul.
