The death toll in a rocket attack that pounded the Afghan capital early Saturday rose to ten and 51 wounded, the first Vice-President Amrullah Saleh confirmed.
The Ministry of Interior (MoI) announced the death toll to eight by the end of Saturday.
In the meantime, Amrullah Saleh said that three brothers who were members of the security forces were also killed in a magnetic mine explosion in PD12 of Kabul.
The first Vice President called yesterday’s rocket attack as a failure attempt, saying “Serious” efforts have begun to investigate the areas where the rockets landed in the capital.
He added that the ammunition used for the rocket attack on Kabul will be found in northern villages and its transmission network will be identified soon.
