Afghan officials say bombings kill 6 civilians

17 Septembre 2017

At least four civilians have been killed and 14 others wounded in an explosion in the eastern Afghan province of Khost, local officials say.

Khairat said the blast was caused by a "remote-controlled bomb".

The blast took place in the underground section of Hamam market in the Khost city after explosive devices were detonated, killing a civilian and another three, the Tolo News quoted Mubarez Zadran, a spokesman for provincial governor, as saying.

Le ministre de l'Intérieur Gérard Collomb a indiqué dimanche au Grand Jury RTL-LCi-Le Figaro que les autorités étaient mobilisées. Dimanche matin, nous pouvions dire que MARIA se dirigeait vers le nord-ouest à environ 25 km/h de moyenne.

It is yet not clear who was the target of the explosion and no individual or group has claimed responsibility behind the attack yet.

On September 11, a suicide bomber struck a convoy of foreign troops in Bagram in Afghanistan.

A USA report found earlier this year that the Taliban controls or contests control of about 40 percent of the country, and security forces are also fighting against militants affiliated with IS.
