At least two people were killed and 15 were injured in the explosion of a bomb in a market in the northern Afghan city of Mazar-i-Sharif, reported Reuters.
Mazar-i-Sharif is located in the northern part of the country and is the fourth largest village in it. The city is an important trading center on the border with Uzbekistan and has been so far away from the violence of rebel groups fighting against the government in Kabul.
The attack was committed by a suicide bomber, said the chief of the local police Baba Zhang. According to the Ministry of the Interior, however, the explosion was hidden in a car.
Still, no terrorist organization has claimed responsibility for the attack.
