Kabul: At least six persons were killed, as a suicide bomber blew an explosive-laden car next to a military base in Afghanistan’s Helmand province on Saturday.
Two Afghan soldiers were amongst the killed and a woman was among the civilians killed, reported CNN. No one immediately claimed responsibility for the attack.
This comes in the backdrop of the Taliban militants attempting to carry out coordinated attacks across country as part of their spring offensive announced on Wednesday.
Saturday’s bombing near the Afghan military base comes about a week after when a suicide blast claimed 60 lives, and wounded over 100 others at a voter registration center in the capital, Kabul. Islamic State (IS) claimed responsibility for that bombing.
