According to authorities, at least four people were killed, and several more were injured in the Afghan capital Kabul.

Saturday's explosion occurred in the city's eastern Bagrami neighborhood, according to Afghanistan's TOLOnews network, and is the most recent in a series of devastating explosions that have rocked Afghanistan in recent months.

A team of Taliban security agents has been dispatched to the region to examine the bombing of the burning minibus, according to police spokesman Khalid Zadran.

No organization has claimed responsibility for the explosion that occurred in a predominantly Sunni Pashtun neighborhood.

Recent bombings in Afghanistan have risen as the Taliban approach one year since gaining power in August 2021.

During the holy month of Ramadan, which ended on April 30 in Afghanistan, dozens of people were killed in Kabul, and other places in essentially sectarian attacks, with some explosions, claimed by ISIL (ISIS).

Numerous attacks targeted Shia Hazaras and Sufi communities, including the bombing of minibusses transporting commuters from offices or markets to their homes.

On April 22, a bomb aimed at Sufi worshippers ripped through a mosque in the northern city of Kunduz, killing at least 33 and injuring others.
