Despite truce, Afghanistan capital Kabul Rocks with deadly blast

KABUL - At least 10 people were injured when an explosive-fitted motorbike exploded on Wednesday afternoon in Police District 6 in the Afghan capital, Kabul.

The source at the site, on the condition of anonymity, told Xinhua that "I saw 10 wounded persons" rolling in bloods on the street after the motorbike blast at 3.30 pm (local time).

The blast took place on the fifth day of the "seven-day reduction in violence" or a partial ceasefire observed by the Taliban outfit since early Saturday.

It would be followed by a US-Taliban peace agreement on February 29 to pave the way for the withdrawal of US forces from the country.
