Nine people have been injured in a landmine explosion in Afghanistan’s eastern province of Nangarhar, a local official says.

The incident took place when a vehicle ran over a landmine in the Achin district of Nangarhar on Wednesday afternoon, said Achin’s Governor Haji Ghalib Mujahid.

He also added that the wounded included four women and a child.

In a separate incident on Wednesday, Mujahid said, eight Takfiri Daesh terrorists were killed and 10 others injured in a clash with security forces in Achin.

Provincial police spokesman Colonel Hazrat Hussain Mashriqiwal said a number of terrorist hideouts and weapons had been destroyed in recent operations in Achin.

Nangarhar has been witnessing a surge in the presence of Daesh terrorists in recent months.
