Farah PRT blast under investigation

Sep 11, 2011 - 14:49

FARAH CITY (PANinfo-icon): An investigation into the explosion in the Provincial Reconstructioninfo-icon Team (PRTinfo-icon) compound in western Farah province has been launched, officials said on Sunday

The explosion occurred late on Saturday when unidentified men lobbed a hand grenade into the PRT building, Deputy Governor Mohammad Younus Rasuli told Pajhwok Afghan News.

Gen. Abdul Samad, the provincial intelligence chief, said three employees of the PRT were slightly injured in an ensuing short circuit.

As PRT Civilian Secretary Feroz denied the blast, the Talibaninfo-icon claimed responsibility for the remote-controlled bomb attack in front of the International Relief and Development office.

Rebel spokesman Qari Yousuf Ahmadi said five foreign workers of the organisation were killed and four others injured.
