KUNDUZ, Afghanistan, Sept. 8 (Xinhua) -- Five civilians sustained injuries as a bomb went off in Afghanistan's northern Kunduz city, the capital of Kunduz Province, on Sunday, said Salih Mohammad, a police official.
"A bomb planted inside garbage bucket went off when some police vehicles were passing the third precinct of Kunduz city, leaving five passersby injured," Mohammad told Xinhua.
There were no casualties on police, he contended.
