Two bombs exploded in the southern Afghan city of Kandahar on Friday evening, killing at least seven people and wounding more than 50, officials said.
"One blast was a vehicle IED (improvised explosive device)," Javed Faisal, spokesman for the Kandahar provincial governor, told AFP. "Seven people are dead and more than 50 are wounded, most of them civilians."
Faisal said that the target of the attack appeared to be police and army vehicles but that many of those injured were civilians who were gathered in a popular public area of the city at the end of the Friday holiday.
