Injured bomber kills himself in Paktia hospital

GARDEZ (PANinfo-icon): While under-treatment, an injured suicide attacker detonated explosives secretly strapped to his body inside a hospital and died in southeastern Paktia province on Monday, an official said.

Police had shifted the would-be bomber to the provincial civil hospital in Gardez after he suffered injuries in a previous low intensity blast also caused by his own explosives.

Paktia police spokesman Zalmai Oryakhel told Pajhwok Afghan News police did not check the man while shifting him to the hospital.

He blew up the remaining explosives secretly attached to his body in the hospital, the official said, adding other people suffered no casualties in the incident.

Civil hospital director Dr. Haya Gul Paktin said the suicide attacker had been brought to the hospital for emergency treatment for his wounds. “We were planning to shift him to a hospital in Kabulinfo-icon after primary treatment here,” he added.
