KABUL, Afghanistan -- A sticky bomb attached to a private car in Kabul went off on Thursday, killing one civilian and wounding two others, a police spokesman said.
No one immediately claimed responsibility and it was unclear why the people in the car were targeted.
The Afghan capital frequently sees attacks — both large-scale bombings claimed by the Taliban or militants from the Islamic State group, but also smaller explosions from so-called sticky or magnetic bombs.
According to police spokesman Ferdaws Faramarz, the victims were on their way to a market in western Kabul when the bomb exploded.
The Taliban today control or hold sway over half of the country and, along with IS, stage near-daily attacks.
