Kabul Checkpoint Bomb Blast kills 10

The military airport is around 200 metres from the Civilian airport and close to the Interior Ministry, itself the site of a suicide bombing last October that killed at least four people

A bomb exploded near a checkpoint at Kabul's military airport on Jan. 01 killed 10 people and wounding several people, a Taliban official said.

No one immediately claimed responsibility for the attack, but the regional affiliate of the Islamic State group - known as the Islamic State in Khorasan Province has increased its attacks since the Taliban takeover in 2021.

Targets have included Taliban patrols and members of Afghanistan's Shiite minority.

The military airport is around 200 metres from the Civilian airport and close to the Interior Ministry, itself the site of a suicide bombing last October that killed at least four people.

Interior Ministry spokesman Abdul Nafi Takor said the blast left 10 people dead and several people wounded.

He said the details of an investigation will be shared later.
