Suicide bomber kills at least 6 in Afghanistan

KABUL: A suicide bomber on a motorcycle killed at least six civilians and wounded 22 on Tuesday when he detonated near a clinic and a school during a police chase in eastern Afghanistan, officials said.

The incident occurred in Parwan province, northwest of capital Kabul, provincial police chief for Parwan Mohammad Zaman Mamozai told AFP.

“We had been tipped off he was coming, he intended to target a police base, but when he found himself being chased by police, he detonated himself in an area close to a school and clinic,” Mamozai said.

“Six civilians have been killed and another 22 injured. There is only one policeman among the wounded.”

Waheed Sediqqi, a spokesman for the provincial governor, said the death toll could rise, with some of the injured in serious condition.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility, but the Taliban are firmly entrenched in the remote mountainous area.

The insurgents have intensified their violent campaign to topple the Western-backed government since the end of NATO’s combat mission in late 2014, multiplying bombings and attacks across Afghanistan.
