An explosion occurred near the attorney general's office in Kabul, Afghanistan, on Wednesday, according to local media, raising questions about the ongoing reduction in violence pact between the US and the Taliban.

The Taliban quickly released a statement, saying they were not responsible for the attack.

Afghan media reported an explosive-laden motorcycle detonated near the attorney general's office, causalities have not yet been reported.

The blast comes during the final days of a reduction in violence agreement between the US and the Taliban. If the blast is determined to be a breach of the agreement, it will throw into question whether the final Afghanistan peace deal can be signed on Saturday, as currently scheduled.

Both groups are operating within the understanding that some violence in the country is not Taliban-directed, Washington and the Taliban have a line of communication that is serving as a dispute mechanism for situations such as this, in order to determine who is responsible for the attack.
