Kabul: A crowded area of Kabul, capital city of Afghanistan, witnessed an explosion on Wednesday, causing several causalities, witnesses said.

The Afghan police has stated that the attack appeared to have been aimed at a member of Parliament. A senior police official said that there had been a casualty but the exact number could only be told after the verification.

"At least one person was killed and four others injured by the blast. It is the initial information and more details would be made public later as investigation is going on into the incident," he said.

The police further stated that the apparent target of the blast was an Afghan parliament member's convoy passing-by the area.

The police forces and rescue operation teams were deployed to the area where the incident took place.

According to the witnesses, "Security forces have sealed off the scene, while ambulances and civilian cars evacuated the victims to the nearby hospitals."

No group took the responsibility of the attack yet.

It may be mentioned that another member of parliament was targeted by a suicide bomber, earlier last week, who had killed at least seven people.

More details were awaited...
