An explosion hit a bus carrying Taliban administration employees in Kabul early on November 2, police said, wounding seven people. "Due to a blast on a minibus from the Ministry of Rural Rehabilitation and Development, seven have been injured," said Khalid Zadran, Kabul's police spokesman. Zadran said the blast was caused by a roadside mine. No group claimed responsibility for the blast.
