An explosion hit a bus carrying Taliban administration employees in Kabul early on November 2, police said, wounding seven people. “Due to a blast on a minibus from the Ministry of Rural Rehabilitation and Development, seven have been injured,” said Khalid Zadran, Kabul’s police spokesman. Zadran said the blast was caused by a roadside mine. No group claimed responsibility for the blast. Last month, an attack by gunmen on a vehicle in western Afghanistan, which was claimed by the Islamic State group, killed five medical personnel employed by Taliban security forces. Though large-scale fighting has ended since foreign forces withdrew in August 2021, the United Nations has said security is deteriorating.
