KABUL, Afghanistan, Aug. 12 (UPI) -- Afghanistan's Interior Ministry said Monday it is investigating the killings of three Chinese citizens in Kabul.

Gunmen attacked a house, killing the three and taking two others hostage, the online Afghan newspaper Khaama Press reported, noting China's major presence in Afghanistan as an investor in major mining projects.

In another kidnapping incident, Khandahar province legislator Fariba Kakar was abducted, with her four children, by armed gunmen while traveling to Ghazni province, Kandahar provincial chief Syed Jan Khakrizwal told Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty Sunday.

Additionally, bombs thrown by a motorcyclist in southern Uruzgan province killed seven and injured four, Khaama Press said, noting no group had taken credit for the incidents.
