Kabul, May 31 (IANS) A huge explosion rocked the Afghan capital on Wednesday morning with preliminary reports suggesting the blast occurred in the vicinity of Wazir Mohammad Akbar Khan area.

It is a high-security area which is home to embassies and diplomatic missions.

The blast occurred not very far from the Indian Embassy.

Sources told IANS that there were no casualties to any Indian national but window panes of the embassy building were shattered.

Images circulating on social media appeared to show a large cloud of black smoke over the city, BBC said.

“Massive explosion just shattered all the windows and glass in our bureau,” Jessica Donati, who covers Afghanistan for the Wall Street Journal, wrote on her Twitter account.
