The Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) team defused an improvised explosive device which the militants had planted close to a school in Kabul city.

The Kabul Police Headquarters said in a statement that EOD team of Kabul Police discovered and defused the bomb on Wednesday morning.

The statement further added that the militants had planted the bomb close to Naheed Shaheed School in the 5th district of Kabul city.

The Kabul Police also added that the militants had planted the bomb with an intention to inflict casualties on ordinary civilians.

The anti-government armed militants including Taliban have not commented in this regard so far.

Taliban and militants of the other groups frequently use improvised explosive device as the weapon of their choice to target the security forces and government officials.

However, the majority of roadside bombings inflict casualties on ordinary civilians.

The officials in northern Kunduz province said a Taliban roadside bomb killed 15 civilians and wounded 2 others late on Wednesday afternoon.
