Bomb explosion hit Kunduz in North, leaving 1 dead

An explosion rocked the provincial capital of northern Kunduz province of Afghanistan this morning, leaving at least four people dead or wounded.

The blast took place in the center of the city but the target of the explosion has not been ascertained so far. Khaama press reported.

According to the eyewitnesses in the area, the blast took place after an explosive device planted in a vehicle went off, leaving one dead and three others wounded.

Today’s explosion in Kunduz comes a day after the anti-government armed militants suffered heavy casualties during operations in Dasht-e-Archi district.

The provincial capital of Kunduz briefly fell to Taliban control last year and since then certain districts have been witnessing violence on occasional basis.

The Ministry of Defense (MoD) said two Pakistani nationals and three other belonging to Tajikistan were among those killed and at least 25 others were wounded.
