At least two security force personnel were killed in a bomb attack near a cricket stadium in Kabul on Wednesday.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack, the latest in a series of deadly assaults in the city. The invasion removed the Taliban militants from power, but militancy continues to this day.

Cricket officials said all the players were safe.
