A bomb exploded on a busy shopping street in Afghanistan's capital Kabul on Saturday, killing three people and injured seven others, TOLO News reported, citing Mawlawi Zabihullah, commander of Police District 6 in Kabul.

The blast occurred in a western district of the city where members of the minority Shiite Muslim community regularly meet.

Video footage posted online showed ambulances rushing to the scene, which is also near bus stations.

A spokesperson for the Taliban interior ministry said an investigation team was at the blast site to help the wounded and assess casualties.

No militant group immediately claimed responsibility for the attack yet.

On Friday, at least eight people were killed and 18 injured in a blast in Kabul carried out by the Islamic State.
