At least 24 people were killed and 40 others injured when a suicide attacker detonated a car bomb in the western part of Kabul on Monday.
The death toll could rise, an Interior Ministry spokesman in the Afghan capital said.
According to the eyewitnesses ,the suicide bomber seemed to target a minibus.
This is the third major attack in the last two months. The western part of Kabul is home to many Shia Hazaras, a persecuted ethnic minority which was hit hard a year ago in a strike which killed dozens.
Pertinently, Taliban, which is battling the Western-backed government for control of Afghanistan, has launched a wave of attacks around the country in recent days, sparking fighting in more than half a dozen provinces.
