A loud explosion ripped through central Kabul during morning rush hour today, a week after the Taliban announced the start of their annual spring fighting season.

The precise location of the blast, heard by AFP reporters, was not immediately clear and Afghan officials could not be reached for comment.

At least seven people were killed and 327 others wounded in an ongoing Taliban attack in central Kabul today, the Afghan health ministry said. “Many of those wounded are in serious condition,” ministry spokesman Mohammad Ismail Kawoosi told AFP.
