Suicide bomber dies before reaching target

LASHKARGAH (PANinfo-icon): A suicide bomber was killed on Monday before reaching his target in the southern province of Helmand, the governor’s office said on Monday.

The bomber, Mullahinfo-icon Ghulam, attempted to detonate his suicide vest inside Marja district headquarters at 6 am, but he detonated his explosives in front of the building because he was in a hurry, Helmand governor’s office said in a statement.

Ghulam was loyal to Talibaninfo-icon commander Mullah Siddique, the statement added. Aside from the attacker himself, the bomb caused no other deaths or injuries.
