100 hurt in Mazar-e-Sharif blast

At least 100 persons were hurt on Thursday when a huge explosion ripped through a market in the northern Afghan city of Mazar-e-Sharif, reports said.

A witness, according to a report, saw a grenade being thrown in one section of the market just before the explosion.

However, this could not be independently confirmed.

Local health minister Mirwais Rabde Sherzod called the explosion a 'terrorist act', and said that the people who did this meant to 'destroy the peace and tranquility'.

According to the report, six people were seriously wounded.

Television footage, transmitted by Iranian television, showed several people lying in hospital cots with bandages around their legs and faces.
