Controlled detonation occurs in Afghan capital (Afghanistan)

KABUL: A big blast was heard in Kabul, capital of Afghanistan, on Saturday morning, while the police said it was a controlled detonation.


"Some old mines were found and exploded this morning," a police officer of district 9 in Kabul told Xinhua anonymously.

Afghan Interior Ministry and the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) confirmed there was no bombing attack in this city on Saturday.

Over the past few weeks, as it gets warm, Kabul has suffered from suicide bombings from time to time.

A suicide blast targeted a senior Afghan intelligence official and at least killed two civilians and injured five others on March28, while another one attacked a U.S. embassy convoy on March 19, wounding five embassy security personnel.
