Afghanistan At least twelve killed in Kabul suicide blast

Arif Noori, governor's spokesman in Ghazni, says 26 others, including a district governor and 18 policemen, were wounded in the Tuesday morning attack in Muqar district.

According to the Afghan president's spokesman Shahussain Murtazawi, the two sides discussed the implementation of the Afghanistan-Pakistan Action Plan for Peace, the fight against terrorism, reducing violence and Afghan peace process.

In the meantime, a security official said the militants have detonated a Humvee armored personnel carrier packed with the explosives near the district security commandment compound. That was confirmed by provincial police chief Nabi Jan Mullah Khail.

Aminullah Ayaddin, a provincial council member, said the attack in the Qala-e Zal district unfolded as the soldiers gathered to eat a predawn meal before fasting.

"The battle is ongoing as we have asked for immediate reinforcements".

A suicide attacker blew himself up on Monday as government workers queued for an early bus home during the holy month of Ramzan, killing at least 13 people and wounding 31, officials and hospital staff said.

"We have ordered our forces to defend with all their power if they are attacked by an enemy that has no respect for anything".
