Rocket attacks wound at least 3 in Afghan capital

Several rockets have been separately fired at different residential areas in the Afghan capital of Kabul, wounding at least three people, police say.

The first rocket hit an area in the west of the city and wounded three people on Tuesday. Eyewitnesses said the rocket landed on a house.

“Based on initial reports, a rocket hit a residential house in Kabul PD5 (police district five), injuring three civilians,” said police spokesman Hashmat Stanikzai.

Only ten minutes later, another explosion was heard in the center of the city. Police confirmed the second explosion had been caused by another rocket, which landed on a shop.

No details were released on casualties from the second attack.

A third explosion was said to have been heard, but its exact location was not immediately known.

There was also no immediate claim of responsibility for the attacks.
