Seven people were killed with several others injured after a car bomb exploded close to the interior ministry in Kabul on Wednesday.

Footage shows the aftermath of the blast, where security forces can be seen carrying one of the casualties, and damaged vehicles can be seen nearby.

"I was at home getting ready to go to university then a heavy explosion happened, all the building's glass broke, the people were in a hurry. When I came out from my home, I saw smoke rising and there were many people wounded and killed," said a witness of the attack, Sayed Nisar.
