PUL-I-ALAM (PANinfo-icon): One person was killed and two others were wounded when a roadside bomb blast ripped through a tractor in central Logar province on Wednesday, police said.

The blast took place in the Wazir Qala area on the outskirts of provincial capital, Pul-i-Alam, crime branch chief, Col. Mohammad Jan Abid, told Pajhwok Afghan News.

He said the victims were brothers. It was a newly planted mine that blew up the tractor, the police official said.
