AFGHANISTAN.Kabul. The bomb attack that targeted the convoy of Afghanistan’s First Vice-President Amrullah Saleh on Wednesday killed 10 civilians.

The Kabul bombing incident is believed to be a pre-planned attack since it happened at the time when the Afghan officials and the Taliban were preparing to commence their first formal talks involving peace negotiation.

The Vice-President has survived the attack with just minor injuries on his face and hands. But, many civilian casualties were reported in the blast. The spokesperson of Afghanistan’s interior ministry, Tareq Arain told BBC that the bombing targeted Saleh’s convoy. The blast took place at a crowded place that left 15 bystanders wounded. The video footage filmed by a citizen, shortly after the explosion, showed a large plume of black smoke rising from the scene.
