Another explosion occurred in Kabul, just hours after two deadly suicide bombings killed at least 24 people and wounded almost 100 in an attack on the Defense Ministry. A Taliban spokesman stated that they targeted the Defense Ministry in the first explosion and the police in the second explosion.

At approximately 11:00 pm local time, the third attack occurred in a residential neighborhood and was accompanied with gunfire. The explosion is said to have been from a car bomb.

An explosion rocked the neighborhood of Shar-e Now, or New City, area around 11 p.m. on Monday, followed by gunfire that is still underway.
