At least 12 people, including seven policemen, have sustained injuries in a truck bomb explosion in Afghanistan’s eastern province of Nangarhar.

The incident happened on Monday morning after a bomber targeted the outer perimeter of a police compound in the Surkhrod district of Nangarhar with an explosives-laden truck, Reuters reported.

The bomber tried to enter the compound but detonated the vehicle prematurely outside the facility, police spokesman Hazrat Hussain Mashreqiwal said.
