At least 14 people have been killed in two separate bomb blasts in Afghanistan. More than 45 people were injured in the incident.
The bombs were exploded on Tuesday in the northern city of Bamyan.
According to the police authorities, two explosives placed on the side of the road suddenly exploded. Several people were rescued in critical condition and admitted to the hospital.
Most of the injured were civilians who came to local restaurants and shops. The death toll is expected to rise, the country’s police also said.
Meanwhile, no group has so far claimed responsibility for the attack, but local authorities believe “it could be carried out by the Taliban”.
