â€œBomb on bus kills seven in western Afghan city: officials,â€ AFP, January 23, 2022:
A bomb blast on a minibus killed at least seven people in an area inhabited by the minority Shiite community in the western Afghan city of Herat on Saturday, officials said.
The sticky bomb was attached to the fuel tank of the bus, and left nine other people wounded.
â€œFour women were among the seven killed,â€ the head of Heratâ€™s provincial hospital, Arif Jalali told AFPâ€¦.
No group has so far claimed the attackâ€¦.
However, several attacks are reported each week throughout the country, including some claimed by the regional chapter of the Islamic State group.
IS has regularly targeted the countryâ€™s Shiite Hazara community with deadly attacks, and the area where Saturdayâ€™s blast occurred near a bus station is also inhabited by the communityâ€¦.
