Khaled Zadran, a spokesman for the Kabul police chief, told CNN that the explosion caused casualties, but did not specify more.

He added that the accident occurred in the city police area 17 and that the security forces at the scene were investigating.

The Emergency Health Organization later confirmed that at least three people had died.

“After today’s explosion, we admitted 27 patients to our surgical center for war victims in Kabul, including five minors, one of whom is a seven-year-old boy,” Stefano Souza, director of emergencies for Afghanistan, told CNN.

“Two dead patients arrived and one died in the emergency room,” he said.

“In the month of August alone, we were able to treat six mass casualties in our hospital, for a total of approximately 80 patients. Throughout the year, we continued to receive bullet wounds, shrapnel injuries, stab wounds, and mine and IED exploding victims on a daily basis.. The country suffers from the repercussions of a long conflict very undermined his future.”

Bilal Karimi, a deputy Taliban spokesman, condemned the blast in a tweet on Twitter on Wednesday evening.

“Civilian killers and perpetrators of similar crimes will soon be arrested and punished for their actions, God willing,” Karimi wrote.

This is an evolving story and will be updated.
