14 Killed as Two Bomb Explosions Rattle Afghanistan

Enjil: At least two people including a child were killed and two more left injured in yet another blast at an election rally of a Parliament member in Afghanistan on Saturday. The blast is the second one that has been reported from the country in a single day.

Earlier, around 12 people were killed and 32 injured in another explosion at an election rally of Nazifa Beg in Takhar province when a motorcycle bomb went off during the campaign rally.

Last week, at least 10 people including a parliamentary candidate were killed and 10 wounded in a suicide bombing inside a campaign office in the Helmand province.

In July, the Independent Election Commission (IEC) of Afghanistan had announced that the parliamentary election in Afghanistan will be held on October 20 and the presidential elections will be held on April 20 next year.

Around 2,500 candidates are running for 249 parliamentary seats.
