Afghanistan blast: one dead and nearly 20 injured in deadly minibus explosion

At least one woman has been killed and nearly 20 other people wounded after a huge blast in the Afghan capital Kabul.

The powerful explosion ripped through a minibus. The vehicle was carrying employees from one of Afghanistan’s biggest telecoms firms.

While there was no immediate claim of responsibility an Interior Ministry spokesman said via Twitter that three suspects had been arrested.

Officials now believe that the deadly blast was caused by a roadside device, rather than a suicide bomber, as was initially thought.

It comes less than a week after dozens of people were killed and wounded by gunmen at one of the country’s biggest military hospitals. That attack was blamed on ISIL.
