An Afghan official says that a roadside bomb has killed at least two civilians in southern Kandahar province.
Nasrat Rahimi, spokesman for the Interior Ministry, said on Saturday that five other people were wounded when the blast struck the vehicle on Friday afternoon in Spin Boldak district.
No one immediately claimed responsibility for the attack, but the Taliban are active in the province and have claimed earlier attacks.
Firdaus Faramarz, spokesman for the Kabul police chief, separately confirms two blasts in Kabul on Friday night. He said there were no casualties.
The Taliban's spokesman, Zabihullah Mujahid, claimed the attacks in Kabul.
Across Afghanistan, militant attacks have continued as the country prepares for presidential elections later this month, while US-Taliban talks over a peace deal have collapsed.
The roadside bombs were spaced within 10-20 metres of one another, said Kabul police spokesman Ferdaws Faramarz. The wounded child is a 12-year-old girl, he said, and added that the police are searching the area where the bombs struck.
Sunday evening's attack took place at a military centre where at least 150 members of the Afghan army and intelligence wing were stationed, according to government officials and the Taliban.
The attacks came against the backdrop of renewed UN calls for an end to violence and as Washington’s special peace envoy, Zalmay Khalilzad, embarked on another round of talks with the Taliban to press them to start negotiating with the newly reconciled Afghan political leadership in Kabul.
The Taliban claimed responsibility for the blast in the northern province of Balkh, saying on Twitter they had attacked the commandos. The defence ministry said two members of the commando force were killed and six wounded, while the rest of the casualties were civilians.
