Bombs Kill at Least 7 in Afghanistan as Hazara Shia Come Under Mounting Attacks

HeadlineJun 14, 2021

In Afghanistan, two separate bomb blasts killed at least seven people and wounded six others in the capital Kabul on Saturday. The explosions hit vehicles on a stretch of road in a neighborhood that’s mostly populated by members of the minority Hazara Shia community. Similar attacks by a local ISIS affiliate in recent weeks have killed scores of people, including nearly 100 people — most of them Hazara girls — killed in an attack on a Kabul school on May 8.
