Terrorists detonated a bomb and damaged a power pylon in Police District 17, north of Kabul last night. Personnel of Da Afghanistan Breshna Sherkat tried to repair the damaged tower and were hurt by an improvised explosive device blast at the site, Da Afghanistan Breshna Sherkat, the country's power supply company said in a statement.

Two of the victims sustained life-threatening wounds, according to the statement.
