According to police, at least one person is killed and two others are wounded in an IED attack in Kabul city on Thursday morning.  

Ferdaws Faramarz, a spokesman to Kabul police told the media, the incident occurred at around 8 am in PD7 in the Chehel-Setoon area of Kabul city.

The IED targeted a vehicle believed to be a governmental vehicle because the vehicle is registered with a black colored license plate.

Identities of the victims have not yet been released, but some media reports claim, the attack happened on the vehicle carrying Presidential Palace’s administrative office employees.  

This is the latest incident amid a string of targeted killings and a spate of IED blasts in the capital of Afghanistan.

So far, no group or individual has claimed responsibility for the attack.

It is not the government officials to face such attacks, in recent months journalists, activists, and public figures also fell victims to such violence.
