residential areas in the early rush hour in the Afghan capital Kabul on
Saturday, killing at least three civilians and wounding a dozen more.

The explosions, close to the diplomatic enclave, sent warning sirens
blaring from embassies and it comes two days before a major donor
conference for Afghanistan in Geneva.

Tariq Arian, spokesman for the Ministry of Interior, said three
civilians had been killed in the attack and 11 wounded. But a health
ministry official said five bodies and 21 injured were taken to the
hospital from the incident.

Afghan Taliban denied involvement in the attack. DNA
