Local agency TOLOnewsþ said the blast took place in the city’s Wazir Akbar Khan District. A Reuters witness reported that a loud blast shook windows and doors in the area, RT reported. A suicide bomber reportedly detonated an explosive device inside Kabul’s ‘Green Zone’ in the vicinity of the Australian embassy. Afghanistan’s Health Ministry has confirmed 14 people have been killed and 13 wounded in the blast, according to TOLO. The self-styled Islamic State terrorist group has claimed responsibility for the explosion.
