At least nine people were killed and 33 wounded after a car bomb was detonated near Kabul University in the Afghan capital on Friday.

Footage shows the burnt remains of the Toyota Corolla, which was used in the suicide blast. Security forces patrolled the premises in front of the university.

"It is still unclear whether the driver's target was actually here or he was just crossing the University street when the car exploded," said Kabul Police spokesperson Firdos Framarz.

The blast reportedly occurred as students were waiting outside the university's southern gate to take an exam.

The Taliban has reportedly denied any responsibility for the suicide blast.
