World A- A A+
4 people was killed and 16 injured — including three children — in an explosion in the northern Afghan city of Mazar-i-Sharif on Saturday, Ednews reports citing the National News.
This came two days after a blast in the city, the capital of Balkh province, killed the provincial governor. That attack was claimed by ISIS.
“A blast has taken place in the second police district of Balkh,” provincial police spokesman Mohamad Asif Waziri said.
He said the explosion killed one person and injured five others, including three children.
Balkh-based journalist Mohammad Fardin Nowrozi, told Reuters that he and several other journalists were injured in the explosion, but did not provide further details.
The cause of the blast was not immediately clear.
Taliban authorities are investigating the explosion that killed the Taliban provincial governor, Mohammad Dawood Muzamil, and two other people at his office in Mazar-i-Sharif on Thursday.
That attack was claimed by ISIS, which has launched repeated attacks against the Taliban since the hardline group returned to power in 2021.
