Truck bomb in eastern Afghanistan kills at least six, wounds dozens

A truck bomb at an Afghan special forces base in the eastern province of Logar killed at least three soldiers and three civilians and wounded dozens of others, officials said on Thursday.


"The bomb was huge and it was carried out by a mini-truck," provincial Governor Aleem Fedaee said. "It inflicted a lot of damage to the civilians and broke windows even a kilometre away."


A doctor at a hospital in the provincial capital of Pul-i-Alam said 13 wounded civilians were brought to the hospital, located about 200 metres from the site of the attack.


He said that 11 doctors at the hospital were also wounded in the blast.
