2 police officers killed in Kabul bomb attack

Two police officers were killed and three others wounded in a bomb attack in Afghan capital Kabul on Thursday, spokesman of Interior Ministry confirmed.

“An improvised explosive device (IED) planted outside a police checkpoint in Panjsad Family neighborhood was detonated roughly at 4:30 a.m. local time Thursday, leaving the casualties,” Nasrat Rahimi said.

The killed and wounded were shifted to a police hospital and an investigation has been initiated, the official said.

No group has claimed responsibility for the attack so far.

The capital city with a population of nearly 5 million has been hit by series of terror attacks over the past couple of years.

On Sunday, 20 people were killed and 50 others wounded in a terrorist attack which targeted a political leader’s office in a populated area in northern side of Kabul.
