Seven people killed after car bomb explodes in Kabul

SANAA, Nov. 13 (YPA) – At least seven people were killed and seven others injured on Wednesday after a car bomb exploded near the Interior Ministry in the capital Kabul, a government spokesman said.

No one has yet claimed responsibility for the attack.

The car bomb blast came a day after two senior Taliban leaders and a Haqqani leader were released in exchange for the release of an American and Australian professors in a development that some analysts hoped would defuse the violence in Afghanistan.

The Taliban kidnapped American and Australian professors from the American University in Afghanistan in Kabul in August 2016.
