CAIRO, December 17. /ITAR-TASS/. Two people were killed and more than a dozen were wounded on Tuesday as a result of an explosion in Kandahar province, southern Afghanistan. According to local law enforcement agencies, an explosive device was set off by a suicide bomber.
Police reported that a militant on a mine-studded motorcycle forced his way into a local market in the middle of the day, when there were many visitors. All injured were rushed to a hospital of Spin Boldak. The hospital’s staff confirmed that two police officers were killed and dozens of civilians were injured as a result of the terrorist attack. The number of victims may rise since many of the people brought to the hospital are in critical condition.
Earlier on Tuesday, in the course of an Afghani security forces raid in the Ghazni province (in 125 km from Kabul) nine Taliban militants were eliminated. Law enforcement bodies reported that the shootout with the Taliban members lasted for several hours. There have been no reports about victims among law enforcement officers as yet. Taliban’s leadership refrained from comments on clashes in Ghazni.
