Two suicide bombers have struck near the home of a candidate running for president in Afghanistan's April 5 elections, a police official said today.
The official, Sayed Gul Aga Hashmi, said police are hunting a third suspect who was involved in the attack.
It was not immediately clear if anyone was hurt in the bombings.
The Taliban claimed in a statement to media that they were behind the blast, saying they targeted a Kabul election centre.
The insurgents have vowed to disrupt the April 5 elections, a poll which will choose Afghanistan's next president and provincial council members.
