KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): A powerful explosion was heard Tuesday night in the heart of Kabul, where four soldiers were killed in a bomb attack in the morning, police said.

A police official, requesting not to be named, told Pajhwok Afghan News the blast happened in the Chaman-i-Hazoori neighbourhood of the capital at 8.05pm.  

He said the bang, whose cause was not immediately known, occurred behind a security post near the Barg-i-Sabz Hotel in the area. There were no casualties.

Area residents confirmed the heavy blast, saying that ambulances rushed to the site soon afterward.
