Wahid Majrouh, a health ministry spokesman, told Al Jazeera that at least 23 people were injured.

No group has claimed responsibility for the attack.

The blast came several days after the Taliban announced a "spring offensive" targeting foreign troops.

Last month, a Taliban attack on an Afghan army base killed at least 140 soldiers.
