Afghan police spokesman Firdaus Varamarz said on Saturday that two police officers were killed and another wounded in an explosion that hit their vehicle in the Afghan capital, Kabul.

The official explained that the explosion occurred in Al-Shurta District No. 3 at 9:15 am local time, killing two policemen inside the vehicle and wounding another.
Without disclosing further details, the official said investigations had begun into the fatal accident.

Kabul has seen a rise in targeted attacks over the past months.

A car explosion in Khair Khana, at the northern tip of Kabul, last Friday evening, killed one person and injured another.
