22 hurt in blast; girl killed on spying charge
KABUL (Pajhwok): At least 22 people, including four children, were injured when a bomb ripped through a crowd in the Qarabagh district of central Kabul province on Monday, an official said.
Four of the wounded in critical condition were taken to a Kabul hospital and the rest being treated at local clinics, he said.
An eyewitness said it was comparatively huge crowd because Monday was a public shopping day for residents in the area.
He said police cordoned off the area soon after the blast and were not allowing anyone to enter scene.
Elsewhere, militants killed a woman they accused of spying for foreign forces in eastern Kunar province.
Kunar police chief Brig. Gen. Abdul Habib Syedkhel said the Taliban executed the 19-year-old in her house in Sarkano district Sunday night.
He said previously Taliban militants had arrested her husband and his fate was still unknown.
The Taliban have so far said nothing about the murder.
