Three blasts rock Afghanistan's Kabul, killing more than a dozen (photos)

Three explosions have rocked Afghanistan's capital Kabul, killing a total of at least 15 people and wounding dozens of others, according to officials.

Eight employees of the ministry of mines and petroleum were killed and 27 wounded in an attack on their bus, ministry officials said in a statement on Thursday.

Five women and a child were among the dead.

Minutes after the blast, a suicide bomber blew himself up a few meters away, killing at least seven people and wounding 20.


"First a magnetic bomb pasted to a minibus exploded, then a suicide bomber blew himself near the bus attack site and the third blast happened when a car was blown up by unknown militants," said Nasrat Rahimi, a spokesman of the interior ministry in Kabul.

"The death toll could rise from all the three blasts," he said.

When people derive pleasure in killing others, it shows the end is near. Lives no longe rmatter!
