KABUL: An Afghan lawmaker was killed and 11 people wounded in a bomb attack in Kabul on Sunday, an Interior Ministry spokesman said.
“A member of Afghanistan parliament Shir Wali Wardak martyred as a result of an explosion in Kabul this evening,” spokesman Sediq Sediqqi tweeted.
The blast occurred near Wardak’s house in Qambar Square, west of Kabul.
An investigation was launched into the bombing and more information will be released later, Sediqqi said.
Eleven people, including security force members, were wounded by the blast, unofficial sources said.
Security forces cordoned off the area shortly after the blast, keeping people from gathering at the scene for fears that there might be a second blast.
No group has claimed responsibility for the attack. NNI
