Roadside bomb kills 3 people in Afghan capital

New Delhi: A roadside bomb exploded in Afghanistan’s capital killing at least three people in a vehicle on Sunday, the latest attack to take place even as government negotiators are in Qatar to resume peace talks with the Taliban.

Tariq Arian, spokesman for the interior minister, said a spokesman for the ministry’s public protection force was one of the three killed in the attack.

Zia Wadan was spokesman for the National Public Protection Force, a security service under the interior ministry that deploys guards to international organisations across Afghanistan.

Wadan and his colleagues were killed in morning rush-hour traffic in an eastern part of the capital, interior ministry spokesman Arian told reporters.

“A vehicle carrying Zia Wadan was targeted with an IED [improvised explosive device] … As a result, Wadan and two of his colleagues were killed,” Arian said, adding another person was wounded.

No group immediately claimed responsibility for the attack.
