Two civilians were killed after a bomb exploded near a Taliban base in Jalalabad on Sunday, according to Afghanistan's local media. Another person, a Taliban member, was also wounded in the blast.

On Saturday, a series of explosions in Afghanistan killed at least two people and injured 21 others on Saturday, the first since US forces left the war-torn country on Aug. 31 and seized authority.

Three explosions occurred one after the other, according to sources, in the eastern city of Jalalabad and another in Kabul, the capital.

According to a public hospital in Jalalabad, two persons were killed in the bombings, while 19 others were injured, including Taliban militants.

According to one eyewitness, the initial blast in the Angorbagh region targeted a Taliban vehicle, killing up to three persons.

According to sources, a magnetic bomb in a car triggered a blast in Kabul’s Dasht-e-Barchi area just before midday, injuring two persons.
