JALALABAD (PANinfo-icon): A policeman was killed and six others were injured on Wednesday in a remote-controlled bomb blast in the eastern province of Nangarhar, officials said.

The explosion hit a border police vehicle at 12:30 pm as police were patrolling the area between the Lali and Warsag deserts in the Lal Pur district, said the governor’s spokesman, Ahmad Zia Abdulzai.

A policeman was killed, six others injured, and their vehicle was destroyed, he said.

A clash erupted between the police and Talibaninfo-icon fighters after the explosion, said Lal Pur district chief Abdul Qayum.

An investigation has been launched into the case, he said.
