Death toll have risen to 40 and over a hundred have been wounded in Saturday's deadly ambulance bombing in Kabul city, the officials have confirmed.

According to Afghan's TOLO News, the explosive-laden ambulance was detonated between two checkpoints outside the old Ministry of Interior building close to Sedarat Square, close to well known Chicken Street.

Ambulances are present at the scene.

"Extensive" damage has been caused to buildings in the area, according to the reports.

A huge plume of smoke could also be seen rising above the city.

This bombing is the latest in a string of deadly attacks across Afghanistan in the past week.

Last Saturday, the Taliban gunmen raided a luxury hotel in Kabul, killing at least 22 people, mostly foreigners.
