Kabul: A suicide attack occurred close to a blood donation campaign in Kabul’s PD4 in Shahr-e-Naw area on Monday, the Kabul Police said.
The blast had no casualties, a spokesman for Kabul Police Hashmat Stanekzai told TOLOnews.
The explosion took place at around 11:30am Kabul time after a suicide attacker who wanted to target the event was stopped by police in the area, Stanekzai said.
“Only the suicide bomber was killed after he detonated his explosives before reaching to his target,” he said, adding that “no one was hurt in the blast”.
Meanwhile, the interior minister Wais Ahmad Barmak who addressed lawmakers at the Wolesi Jirga, Lower House of Parliament, on Monday confirmed the incident and said “the enemies have changed their tactics and we will also change our tactics against them”.
No group has so far claimed responsibility for the attack. The attack comes a week after, two suicide bombers killed almost 30 people in a twin bombing in Shash Darak area in Kabul. Nine journalists were also among those killed in the explosion.
