6 killed in roadside blast in east Afghanistan
At least six Afghan people, including policemen, have been killed in a roadside bomb attack in a district in eastern Afghanistan.
According to Farid Afzali, the head of the Kabul Police Criminal Investigation Office, at least four policemen and two civilians were killed in the attack in the Qarabagh district, located 56 km to the southwest of Ghazni in the eastern part of Afghanistan.
The incident took place after the vehicle carrying the policemen was hit by the roadside bomb.
No individual or group has claimed responsibility for the act of violence. However, such incidents are usually blamed on the Taliban militants.
On Saturday, at least ten people were killed in a bomb explosion that struck a police checkpoint in Afghanistan’s northern province of Kunduz.
Latest official data show as many as 22 bomb attacks were carried out in Afghanistan in March. Meanwhile, some 116 people lost their lives and nearly 170 others sustained injuries in a spate of terrorist attacks during the same period.
