Two blasts killed five people in western Kabul, Afghanistan on Saturday. Violence has been rising as foreign forces withdraw from the country by 11th of September and efforts to broker a peace settlement between the Afghan Government and insurgent Taliban have slowed.

According to Afghanistan’s Ministry of Interior, the blasts took place in a neighbourhood dominated by the minority Hazara community where attacks on buses earlier this month killed 12 civilians. The Head of Ali Jenah Hospital in Kabul Eid Wali said, the facility was treating six people injured in the blasts. It was not immediately clear who was behind the attacks.

The Hazara community has also been the target of a number of attacks from the Islamic State militant group. In May, an unclaimed attack on a school in the area left around 80, mostly school girls, dead.
