Not less tha eight people have lost their lives after a bomb detonated near university premises in Afghanistan’s capital on Friday, officials said.
Wahidullah Mayar, the Health Ministry spokesman, wrote on Twitter that another 33 people were wounded in Friday’s explosion.
Reports said the blast took place near Kabul University’s southern entrance.
There has been no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack.
The early morning explosion also set two vehicles ablaze, although it was not clear if the attack was carried out by a suicide bomber or a remotely detonated bomb, according to Kabul police spokesman Ferdous Faramarz.
