Click here: IINA – Seven Afghan civilians die in suicide blast

At least seven people have been killed and 29 wounded in a suicide bomb attack in Afghanistan during Eid Al Fitr. The attack took place in Spin Boldak in the southern province of Kandahar as Hamid Karzai, Afghanistan’s president, visited the provincial capital 100 km away. The bomber, who was riding a motorcycle, detonated his explosives in a crowded shopping area, Sayed Aqa Safed, Kandahar province police chief, said. “Five civilians and two policemen were killed… the suicide attacker was torn into pieces,” Safed said.
The target of Saturday’s attack appeared to have been policemen aboard two pick-up trucks parked in the street. There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the incident but Taliban fighters have increased suicide attacks in recent months.
