THREE people were killed and 11 more have been wounded in a blast on a bus said to be carrying government employees in Sar-e-Kotal road in Kabul’s District 17 on Thursday, March 18. According to police, a bus carrying civilians was targeted in the explosion.
However, eyewitness reports claim that the bus had actually been carrying government employees, stating that a 4Runner and a Coaster type vehicles were destroyed in the blast.
On Monday, March 15, another bus carrying government employees was hit by a bomb in the city, which killed five people – including four women.

According to estimates by Tolo News, 144 people have been killed and 214 others have been wounded in different security incidents in the last 18 days.
