A car bomb detonated in the Afghan capital of Kabul during Wednesday’s morning commute, killing seven people and wounding at least seven, officials said.
Rahimi said that the target of the attack was not immediately clear. He added that an investigation was underway at the scene.
No one immediately claimed responsibility for the attack, but both Taliban and Islamic State group are active in the capital and have claimed many previous attacks in Kabul.
Ambulances sirens could be heard, and a giant plume of smoke rose from the area of the explosion.
