Russian diplomatic staff injured in IED bombing in Afghan capital Kabul - Foreign Minstry

Employees of the Russian diplomatic mission in Afghanistan have suffered minor injuries after their vehicle hit an improvised explosive device in the capital Kabul, the Foreign Ministry in Moscow confirmed on Tuesday.

The people inside the car suffered “mild concussions,” spokeswoman Maria Zakharova told reporters during a briefing. She added that the ministry believes the IED was intended for a vehicle carrying Afghan security forces loyal to the government in Kabul, but does not rule out the possibility of a terrorist attack aimed against Russian citizens.

Moscow has called on Kabul to conduct a thorough investigation into the incident.
