Kabul/New Delhi: Two Indians are among 25 people killed in a string of bombings across Afghanistan on Monday.

In the first attack, a Taliban suicide bomber hit a minibus carrying foreign security guards in Kabul along the main road to the eastern city of Jalalabad.

 

The Taliban also claimed a second smaller blast in south Kabul. The third blast took place in a market in the remote northeastern province of Badakhshan.

External affairs ministry spokesperson Vikas Swarup in New Delhi said, “We have learnt that 2 Indian nationals, Ganesh Thapa and Govind Singh from Dehradun died tragically in the blast in Kabul today morning.”

“Government is in touch with the families of Indian nationals and is working with the Afghan government to repatriate their mortal remains at the earliest,” the MEA spokesperson said.
