The deadly incident happened on Wednesday morning in the Taimani area in northwestern Kabul. The powerful explosion left the street covered with rubble and seriously damaged one of the cars.

At least 10 people were killed by the explosion and 10 others were injured, including some of Saleh’s bodyguards.

Saleh himself was unharmed in the attack, his son Ebad tweeted. The Afghan government confirmed that the vice president was fine, saying the attackers “failed to get to their evil aim.”

No party would immediately claim responsibility for the bombing.
