A minibus carrying employees of a local television station was hit by a roadside bomb blast in Kabul on Saturday, leaving two people dead and seven injured. The "Islamic State" group has claimed responsibility for the attack.
"Our colleagues Mir Wahed Shah, an economic reporter, and Shafiq Amiri, an employee in the technical department, were martyred in the incident," said Mohammad Rafi Rafiq Sediqi, chief executive of the Khurshid TV station.
A recent fall in violence has increased hope for Afghanistan's peace process, which seemed to be on the brink after Taliban violence soared in the months following a deal signed with the United States in February.
