Senators on Sunday raised questions over recent fires in Kabul, Farah and Herat province that mainly targeted fuel imports, saying there are "some hands behind such incidents" that seek to harm the country’s economy.
The Ministry of Interior Affairs said that nine people were killed and 14 more were wounded in the major fire at a tanker truck station in the Qala-e-Murad Bek area north of Kabul along the key highway that connects the capital city with northern provinces.
A massive fire that began with a tanker truck carrying fuel in the Shakar Dara district of Kabul along the highway connecting the capital with northern provinces has inflicted heavy damage to vehicles and nearby houses as residents described.
This led to a protest by residents of the area who closed the highway to traffic for many hours on Sunday.
