Jul 28, 2019 22:07 IST

2 people were killed and at least 25 others were wounded as a powerful explosion hit central Kabul on Sunday. Amrullah Saleh, Afghan President Ashraf Ghani's running mate in the upcoming election was also wounded by shrapnel, before he was safely evacuated from the office. The blast comes on the first day of campaigning for presidential elections. While no one has claimed responsibility for the attack, both Taliban insurgents and the Islamic State group are active in the Afghan capital.
