KABULinfo-icon (PANinfo-icon): Six people, including two civilians, were wounded in a suicide attack on a district headquarters east of Kabul on Thursday, an official said.

The blast took place when police stopped a trucker who was trying to enter the Musahi district headquarters, a parliamentarian from the neighbourhood told Pajhwok Afghan News.

As a result of the explosion, two civilians and four policemen were wounded, Qais Hassan said, without giving further details.
