KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): A magnetic bomb exploded on a Ministry of Agricultureinfo-icon bus on the Kabul-Logar Highway in Kabul on Sunday morning, injuring seven people, police said.

The Kabul police headquarters in a statement said the explosion took place in the Bini Hisar area of Kabul on the bus that belonged to the Agriculture Ministry.

The bus was carrying the ministry’s employees to their offices early in the morning when the bomb exploded.

Soon after the blast, police rushed to the scene and evacuated the injured to a nearby hospital. Two of the injured were said to be in critical condition.

The blast prompted the authorities to close the highway to traffic for one hour, an eyewitness, Abdul Naseer, told Pajhwok Afghan News.
