A well-known Afghan activist is killed in Kabul

At least one police officer has dead and two others have been injured in Kabul in the explosion of a car bomb, while the head of the NGO Forum for Free and Fair Election of Afghanistan has been murdered this Wednesday by gunmen also in the Afghan capital, according to Europa Press.

The Kabul Police have confirmed the detonation of a police vehicle around 6:55 a.m. local time, when an improvised explosive device hit the car.

For his part, the brother of Yousuf Rashid, head of the Forum for Free and Fair Election in Afghanistan, has confirmed his death at the hands of gunmen unknown also this Wednesday, according to the local television network Tolo News.

Rashid was leaving his home in Police District 7 for a press conference when he was attacked, while his driver has also been injured in the incident.

These deaths occur just one day after five other people were killed and two injured in a mine explosion in Kabul.

In recent days, the Afghan capital has once again been the scene of constant attacks, such as the one that killed ten people and left more than 50 injured this Monday, after an attack on the convoy of a member of Parliament from the capital, Haji Khan Mohammad Wardak, who was able to get out alive.

More than 60 attacks have been registered in Kabul in the last two months, in the midst of an upsurge in violence, leaving some 120 people dead and around 300 injured.

At the moment, no group has claimed responsibility for the attacks.

Despite the peace agreement signed on February 29 in Doha and the talks with the Afghan government currently taking place in the Qatari capital, the Taliban have maintained their campaign of attacks against the Afghan security forces and have refused to accept a ceasefire to facilitate the dialogue process.
