A suicide bomber detonated his explosives-laden car close to a military base in southern Afghanistan early Sunday, inflicting many casualties.
Afghan officers stated the assault in Nad Ali district of Helmand province killed not less than two Afghan troopers and wounded a number of others. However a safety official informed VOA on situation of anonymity eight Afghan troopers had been killed and almost a dozen extra injured.
The Taliban took accountability for finishing up the bombing. An rebel spokesman claimed the highly effective blast “killed and wounded” greater than 100 Afghan safety personnel, although Taliban casualty tolls are sometimes inflated.
Helmand is a serious poppy-producing area the place a lot of the districts are managed or contested by the Taliban.
