Civilian, Security Force Member Killed in 2nd Kabul Blast, 5 dead in 24 hours
[ToloNews] At least one civilian and a security force member were killed in a blast on an army vehicle in Kabul on Monday afternoon, Kabul police said in a statement.

The blast happened about 12:00pm local time from an IED hitting an army vehicle in the Jangalak area of PD7 of Kabul city, the statement said.

However,
a woman is only as old as she admits...
the police have not provided further details about the blast.

No group including the Taliban
...the Pashtun equivalent of men...
immediately grabbed credit for the blast.

Also, a blast targeted an armored vehicle belonging to Khushnood Nabizada, head of the office of the state minister for peace affairs this morning, but there were no casualties, security officials said. The incident happened around 7:26 am local time in the Shaheed roundabout in Kabul in PD10 after Nabizada’s vehicle was hit by an IED, the security forces said.

Nabizada and two of his children were in the vehicle when the blast happened, but no one, including his driver, was hurt, said relatives. Nabizada is also founder of the Khaama Press, an online news agency in Afghanistan.
