Görkem ŞEKEROĞLU -TDO- At least 14 people have been killed and 45 wounded after two bomb blasts in the evening rush hour in a marketplace in the city of Bamiyan in central Afghanistan, according to Afghani officials.
The police chief of the province Zabardast Safai said on Tuesday that the explosives were thought to be hidden at the side of a road in Bamiyan, which is home to numerous members of the mainly Shia Hazara ethnic minority.
The victims included 12 civilians, and 2 traffic police officers.
The Interior Ministry Spokesman Tariq Arian said that the explosions were caused by two magnetic bombs, calling it an unforgivable crime.
The attack was not immediately claimed by any group. The Taliban, which has been waging a rebellion against the Kabul administration since being toppled in late 2001, has denied any involvement in the bombings.
