Bomb Blast Rocks Cricket League

There were reports of a bomb blast in Afghanistan’s biggest cricket league at the weekend.

According to initial reports by the officials, four people were injured, though no harm to the players or the cricket staff.

UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres in a tweet said: “I strongly condemn the attack at the Kabul International Cricket Stadium, which claimed the lives of at least 19 civilians & caused additional casualties.

Attacks against civilians and civilian objects are strictly prohibited under international humanitarian law”.

The relevant officials say that the explosion occurred due to the explosives planted in the stands at the Kabul International Cricket Stadium while the match between the Pamir Zalmi and Band e Amir Dragons in the country’s domestic T20 league was going on.

The game was delayed for a while, and it started again.
