Afghanistan’s Vice president Saleh escapes bomb attack
According to details, a roadside bomb targeting Afghan VP Amrullah has left at least four people dead and several security guards injured.
Saleh sustained minor injuries but his condition is stable. He posted a video on social media soon after the attack in which he informed about his health to people.
“I was travelling to office when my convoy was attacked. I am fine but some of my guards have been wounded. My son, who was in the car with me, and I are both fine," Saleh said adding,
"I have some burns on my face and hand. The blast was strong."
No group has claimed responsibility, but Saleh is known for his anti-Taliban stance.
Attacks come as Afghan government and the Taliban are expected to begin peace talks soon in Doha, the capital of Qatar.
The process of peace talks were supposed to begin in March but were frequently delayed over a prisoner swap that included the release of hundreds of Taliban.
