Kabul, June 6 (IBNS): A blast in western Herat province of Afghanistan left at least seven people killed on Tuesday, media reports said.

The incident left 16 others injured.

Governor’s spokesman, Jailani Farhad, told Pajhwok Afghan News that the incident took place on a road close to Herat Grand Mosque in Herat city around 3pm today.

The explosives were reportedly  placed in a rickshaw.

No group has claimed responsibility for the attack so far.

Several blasts have hit Afghanistan in recent times.

The Indian ambassador's residence in Kabul came under attack earlier on on Tuesday as a rocket-launched grenade landed in its premises, NDTV reported.

The  grenade burst in the tennis court, where it had landed. No one has been injured.

The attack came the day the Kabul peace process conference started.

The conference is being attended by the leaders of 27 nations and representatives of international organisations.
