Afghan police say gas explosion kills 7 in Kabul

An Afghan police official says an explosion in the capital has killed seven civilians and wounded 16.

 

Hafez Khan said police were investigating Friday's blast, which took place in a residential neighborhood of Kabul, far from any government offices or other obvious targets. Kabul's deputy police chief, Aqhnawaz Aqyar, later said it appeared to have been an accidental explosion at a shop selling cooking gas canisters.

 

A bombing in the eastern Nangarhar province earlier in the day killed one person and wounded eight.

 

Attaullah Khogyani, spokesman for the provincial governor, said the blast took place inside a mosque during Friday prayers.
