KUNDUZ CITY (Pajhwok): An advisor at the revenue department of northern Kunduz province and his two companions were injured when a magnetic bomb fixed to their vehicle went off on Monday, an official said.
The bomb exploded when advisor Zahir Khanzada left his house and sat in his car around 8:30am, injuring him, his driver and a third person, police spokesman Syed Sarwar Hussaini told Pajhwok Afghan News.
The wounded were immediately evacuated to a health facility run by Doctors Without Borders in Kunduz City.
