HERAT: An explosion that occurred early on Wednesday morning in the western Herat province caused no major casualties, Muhayudin Noori, the governor’s spokesman, told Pajhwok Afghan News, adding that the bomb was planted under a culvert.

The blast happened while a government vehicle was crossing the road, he said, adding that only the driver of the vehicle was superficially injured.

The blast was the first security incident after Afghan forces took over security responsibility from the international troops in the province.
