Huge explosion heard in Afghan capital Kabul

A huge explosion has been heard in Afghanistan’s capital, Kabul, a police spokesman has said.

No details of a possible target or the number of casualties have emerged as yet from the blast on Monday.

This comes a day after a deadly car bomb explosion killed at least eight people in Jalalabad, near a provincial government building in the country’s eastern province of Nangarhar.

Following Sunday’s blast, four attackers stormed the finance directorate in the provincial capital, triggering heavy fighting with security officials.
