KABUL, June 27 (Xinhua) -- The Afghanistan Independent Human Rights Commission (AIRC) denounced Saturday a bomb blast which killed two staff, including a female advisor, in Kabul earlier on Saturday.

"The AIHRC mourns the loss of two of its staff members who were killed in a bomb explosion this morning in Butkhak locality in Police District 12 of Kabul," the commission said in a statement.

The statement said that the commission would share more information with the public after full investigation into the issue.

Locating in eastern part of the city, the district has been the scene of scores of bomb attacks for many years.

No group or individual has claimed responsibility for the attack, the latest in a string of targeted attacks in the country.

Over the past years, the capital city with a population of nearly 5 million has been hit by series of terror attacks by the Taliban insurgents and militants of the Islamic State (IS) opposing the government. Enditem
