At Least Two People Injured in Bombing Near U.S. Embassy in Kabul
At least two people were injured in a bombing near the United State Embassy in Kabul, Afghanistan on Monday.
The bombing happened at a main square in Kabul, the country’s capital, located near the Afghanistan Supreme Court as well as the U.S. Embassy.
“I’m certain no U.S. or NATO forces were wounded,” Col. Michael T. Lawhorn, a Kabul-based U.S. military spokesman, toldFox News. An army officer was one of the two people wounded, according to Faredoon Obiadi, chief of the police’s criminal investigations department.
Obiadi said the explosive used was a sticky bomb that was attached to a military vehicle when it went off. A sticky bomb is a kind of grenade made to attack enemy vehicles.
So far no group has claimed responsibility for this attack, which comes amid a strong Taliban resurgence in Afghanistan. – READ MORE
