HEART CITY (Pajhwok): At least seven people, including two children, were wounded in an explosion near the governor’s house in western Herat province on Sunday, an official said.

The governor’s spokesman, Ghulam Jilani Farahi, told Pajhwok Afghan News the blast took place close to the governor’s house at around 1:30pm.

Herat Zonal Hospital spokesman, Mohammad Rafiq Sherzai, confirmed receiving seven wounded people from the incident area. He said two children and a traffic police were among the injured.

An eyewitness, Taheri Alizada, said: “I saw rockets in a rickshaw that police had seized. The blast caused the rockets to explode and one of the rockets hit a wall of the governor’s house.”

However, Farahi denied her claim as baseless. No group has so far commented on the incident.
