The Afghan government on Wednesday rejected the Taliban claim that nearly 100 members of the group's detainees--who were on the list of 5,000--had not been released by the government.
The Afghan government has said that all Taliban prisoners on the list have been released.
A blast targeted the convoy of First Vice President Amrullah Saleh on Wednesday morning in the Taimani area of Kabul city. VP Saleh survived, sustaining only minor injuries, but the MoI said at least 10 people were killed and 16 were wounded, while other sources say the number of casualties--both dead and wounded--is significantly higher.
The attack comes as the intra-Afghan attacks are expected to start within a week's time, and both Afghan leaders and members of the international community have publicly expressed biting condemnation of the attack.
