KABUL: Two women doctors working at an Afghan prison with hundreds of Taliban inmates were among five people killed on Tuesday by a bomb stuck to their car, officials said, reports AFP.

The blast happened in the south of the capital as they were on their way to Pul-e-Charkhi prison, Kabul police spokesman Ferdaws Faramarz said.

Two other prison employees in the car—as well as a pedestrian—were also killed, while a third woman doctor was wounded, Afghanistan’s prison authority said.

Faramarz had earlier told reporters that four prison doctors had been killed by the bomb.
