Big blast at shop in Afghan capital, several killed
Advertisements [?]

KABUL (Reuters) - A large explosion occurred at an ammunition shop in the Afghan capital on Wednesday, destroying surrounding shops and killing several people, officials said.

"There are a number of casualties but it's not clear how many," Interior Ministry spokesman Bashari Zarmai said.

Residents had earlier said the blast was caused by a suicide attack on an Afghan army patrol.

Last year, the bloodiest since the Taliban's ouster in 2001, the city was rocked by several suicide attacks that killed dozens.

The Taliban say they will step up suicide attacks across the country this year.
