Explosion in Kabul near Afghan national parliament

An explosion on Tuesday morning rocked an area in the west of the Afghan capital, Kabul, close to the country's national parliament, police said.


The explosion occurred soon after 9 am (0430 GMT) in an area called Karta-e Seh, a Kabul police source said, and came as hundreds of local and international officials gathered on Kabul's outskirts ahead of a ceremony to mark the beginning of the final phase of security transition to Afghan forces across the nation.
