KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): An explosion took place on the Metrological Department Road in the 15th police district of Kabul on Tuesday morning, but details of casualties were not immediately available.

Head of 119 police helpline, Brig. Gen. Humayoon Aini, told Pajhwok Afghan News that the magnetic bomb went off at around 8am near a power pylon on the busy capital road.

The bomb, attached to a mobile top-up card machine, destroyed the device and smashed windowpanes in nearby buildings, resident Mukhtar Faizi said, giving an eyewitness account.

Police condensed off the area and launched an investigation into the incident, he said. No one has so far claimed responsibility for the blast.
