Early indications suggest that the blast is likely to have been the result of a small improvised explosive device (IED), with at least one person being wounded in the incident.
Localized disruptions are likely in the Shahre Naow area in the near term due to ongoing security and clean-up operations.
Those in Kabul are advised to avoid the affected area, remain vigilant for militant activity, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities and their home governments.
The security environment in Afghanistan remains complex. Professional security advice and support should be sought prior to travel.
