Kabul blast: The Afghan authorities announced the death toll of the car bomb explosion in the capital Kabul to 12 people, including children, as well as the injury of 20 others. The death toll in the Kabul blast has risen to 12 dead and 20 wounded.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility in the rush-hour attack, that comes a day after the Afghan government agreed on a prisoner exchange with the Taliban insurgents in the hopes of reviving peace talks.

Nasrat Rahimi, a spokesman for the interior ministry, said a suicide bomber driving a van targeted an armoured vehicle that belonged to GardaWorld, a Canadian security company that saw four of its staff wounded in the attack.
