LONDON, August 7. /TASS/. Eight people have been killed and 400 wounded in a truck bomb explosion in the east of Afghanistan’s capital Kabul, the Tolonews agency reported on Friday.
Wahidullah Mayar, spokesman for the Ministry of Public Health, has revised the injured toll and says eight people have died and 400 civilians were wounded in Friday’s deadly truck bomb blast, the agency reported. Mayar said all 400 are civilians and most sustained minor injuries from flying glass. Scores of homes and buildings were destroyed in the blast, and rubble lay strewn across the streets of Shah Shaheed, Tolonews reported.
A Western security source said the target was probably a compound used by Afghan intelligence officials and that as many as 15 people had been killed, Reuters reported earlier on Friday.
