By The Associated Press

A car bomb blast that rocked Afghanistan's capital Sunday morning killed at least nine people, according to the Afghan Interior Ministry.

Interior Minister Masoud Andarabi told reporters at the site of the attack that the attack wounded around 20 other people, including a member of parliament, Khan Mohammad Wardak. Andarabi said the lawmaker was in "good condition."

The interior minister added that the casualty toll could rise further.

The attack happened while the lawmaker's convoy was passing through an intersection in Kabul's Khoshal Khan neighborhood. The blast set afire surrounding civilian vehicles, as well as damaging nearby buildings and shops.

No one immediately claimed responsibility for the attack.

Afghan President Ashraf Ghani said in a statement that the Taliban should stop violence against civilians and accept a cease-fire, to facilitate the current peace process.

The Islamic State group has claimed responsibility for multiple attacks in the capital of Kabul in recent months, including on educational institutions that killed 50 people, most of them students.
