Security officials were not immediately available for comment on the blast. The blast took place in Shahr-e-naw, which is one of the main commercial areas of Kabul.
After the Taliban came to power, many Chinese businessmen have started coming and going in Afghanistan. Beijing has also started its embassy in Afghanistan but China does not officially recognize the Chinese rule in Afghanistan.
