PUL-I-KHUMRI (Pajhwok): Seven people were killed and a dozen others wounded in a bomb explosion in northern Baghlan province on Thursday, an official said.

The blast happened inside a shop in the main bazaar of Baghlan-i-Markazi district at about 4pm, the governor’s spokesman told Pajhwok Afghan News.
