KABUL: Interior Ministry deputy spokesman Ahmad Zia, said, the attacks targeted minivans on the same road about 2 kilometers (1.25 miles) apart in a neighborhood in western Kabul.

Separate bombs hit two minivans in a mostly Shia neighbourhood in the Afghan capital on Saturday, killing at least seven people and wounding six others, the Interior Ministry said.

It wasn’t immediately clear what type of bombs were used and no one immediately claimed responsibility for the attacks.

In some west Kabul neighbourhoods populated mostly by the minority Hazara ethnic group, just going out for errands can be dangerous. The militant Islamic State group has carried out similar bombings in the area, including four attacks on four minivans earlier this month that killed at least 18 people.

The first explosion of Saturday’s attack killed six people and wounded two and the second explosion in front of Muhammad Ali Jinnah hospital, where a majority of Covid-19 patients are admitted, killed one and wounded four.

The area where the explosions happened is largely populated by Hazaras, who are mostly Shia Muslims.
