Seven people were killed and five injured in the first explosion, said Najib Danish, a spokesman for the interior ministry, adding that authorities had dispatched ambulances to the incident sites.
Kabul police spokesman confirmed the blast and said it might have been caused by a suicide attack, but there was no confirmation and no immediate claim of responsibility.The attacks came just a week after a blast at a voter registration center killed 60 people, in the wake of warnings by security officials against the risk of increasing attacks ahead of parliamentary elections planned in October.
It may be recalled that, the taliban militants announced their usual spring offensive last week and there has been heavy fighting in several areas of the country since.
