Rockets hit Afghan capital Kabul: police
At least two rockets fired from undisclosed location hit downtown Afghan capital Kabul Tuesday morning, causing no casualties, a police source said.
"Two rockets landed near the Kabul stadium in police district 2 at around 6:40 a.m. local time and according to initial reports by our police forces, no one was killed or wounded in the attack,"the source told Xinhua anonymously.
The scene is located around 4 km south of Afghan Presidential Palace and the main NATO headquarters in the city with around 4 million populations.
Several government agency buildings, including defense ministry compound, were located near the attack site.
Citing police chief of Kabul Mohammand Ayoub Salangi, a local tv channel Lemar TV also reported that the attack caused no casualties.
The government troops immediately cordoned off the area shortly after the blasts.
No group claimed responsibility for the attacks, but Taliban suspects routinely claim responsibility for such attacks.
On Sept. 18, at least 12 people, including nine foreigners, were killed and 11 others were wounded in a suicide bombing near Kabul airport in an attack claimed by the Hizb-e-Islami, the second militant group opposing the government,
Taliban insurgents fighting the government forces and some 100, 000 NATO-led troops have yet to make comments.
