At least one person has been killed and four others injured in a series of car bombings in Kabul, Afghanistan, authorities say.

The driver, speaking to the AP at the hospital, said that at one point on his journey, a suspicious man boarded a bus and a few minutes later, an explosion erupted behind him.

He saw two riders with their clothes on fire falling into the back of the car while others fled from the front.

“I was in my car when the explosion occurred in the car in front of us,” a witness told AFP. “It burned.”
