A car bomb killed eight people and wounded more than 15 others in Kabul on Sunday, interior ministry spokesman Tariq Arian said.
Officials said, "The terrorists have carried out a terrorist attack in Kabul city. Unfortunately, eight of our countrymen were killed and more than 15 others were wounded."
Earlier on Friday, a bomb rigged to a rickshaw killed at least 11 children and wounded 20 others in eastern Afghanistan, a provincial official said, as violence in the war-weary country continued to surge.
"It was a powerful explosion that has caused a lot of damage to houses in the vicinity," the source said. Television footage showed at least two cars on fire, with plumes of thick black smoke billowing into the sky.
