At least nine people were killed and 33 wounded after a car bomb was detonated near Kabul University in the Afghan capital on Friday.

"It is still unclear whether the driver's target was actually here or he was just crossing the University street when the car exploded," said Kabul Police spokesperson Firdos Framarz.
The blast reportedly occurred as students were waiting outside the university's southern gate to take an exam.
