Kabul, two suicide bombers were killed and a child was wounded in an explosion in the Afghanistan capital on Saturday, police said.
“Two suicide bombers riding a motorcycle died after their explosives went off prematurely near an industrial park in Bagrami locality at around 5 p.m. local time. The blast caused two bombers killed on the spot and injured one child,” a police official told Xinhua.
The target of the attack remained unknown.
The injured has been shifted to a nearby hospital while security forces have cordoned off the area for precautionary measures.
The Taliban-led insurgency has been rampant since April 24 when the militant group launched its so-called annual spring offensive in various places of the militancy-plagued Afghanistan which had claimed hundreds of lives including militants, security personnel and civilians.
Earlier on Saturday, three children were killed and three other children wounded when a bomb was detonated in a shop near a religious school in southern Kandahar province, the provincial government said.
More than 970 civilians were killed and nearly 1,960 others wounded in conflicts and Taliban-led insurgency in the first four months of 2015, according to official figures released by the UN mission in the country.
