According to TOLOnews, in one incident, a vehicle hit a roadside bomb in Chahar Asiab district in Kabul on Sunday morning, killing five members of one family. Relatives of the deceased family informed that the family was on its way to the Lalandar area for a Nawroz celebration when their vehicle was targeted by the blast.

In another roadside bomb blast that occurred in Bagrami district in Kabul last night, "one police force member was killed and one more was wounded", police added.

Also, a security source told Tolo News that "one person was killed and two more were wounded in an attack by unknown armed men in Qargha lake in Paghman district of Kabul on Friday".
