Mazar-I-Sharif, Afghanistan/ Xinhua: Two people were killed and eight others injured as two blasts rocked Mazar-i-Sharif city in the capital of the northern Balkh province on Wednesday, provincial police spokesman Adil Shah Adil said Thursday.

"Two blasts in a span of few minutes rocked PD 3 of Mazar-e-Sharif city at 9:30 p.m. local time Wednesday, killing one civilian on the spot," Adil told Xinhua, and one police officer succumbed to his injury in the hospital.

The first blast injured a taxi driver, while the second one killed a civilian and injured eight others including five policemen, according to the official, adding that the deputy to the police station of PD 3 is among the injured.
