[Afghanistan], Oct 13 (ANI): At least two people including a child were killed and two more left injured in yet another blast at an election rally of a Parliament member here on Saturday.

Around 12 people were killed and 32 injured in another explosion at an election rally of Nazifa Beg in Takhar province earlier in the day when a motorcycle bomb went off during the campaign rally.

Around 2,500 candidates are running for 249 parliamentary seats. (ANI)
