KABULinfo-icon (PANinfo-icon): A private company's luxury vehicle was hit by a roadside bomb in the Paghman district of Kabul, but passengers escaped unhurt, an official said on Tuesday.

The blast took place on Monday midnight when A Hilux car of Azim Sharifi Limited was struck by the bomb in Farmankhel village, deputy police chief, Col. Abdul Jamil, told Pajhwok Afghan News.

He blamed the Insurgents for the bombing and an investigation into the incident had been launched. There was no immediate comment from the militants.
