13 civilians including children wounded in Baghlan explosion

Nov 19, 2015 - 11:51

PUL-I-KHUMRI (Pajhwok): At least 13 civilians were wounded in an explosion targeting a convoy of security forces in the Baghlan-i-Markazi district of northern Baghlan province on Thursday, an official said.

The explosive device, planted in front of the Baghlan-i-Markazi Cinema, went off at about 9:30am when the convoy of Public Order Police (POP) was passing through the neighbourhood.

Although the Police personnel escaped unhurt in the explosion, nine civilians sustained injures, Mahmood Haqmal, the governor’s spokesman, told Pajhwok Afghan News.

Dr. Khalil Naramgo, the civil hospital director, said two children -- aged nine and 12 years -- were among the wounded. Some of the injured were in critical condition, he added.

Neither security forces nor the Talibaninfo-icon have commented yet on the explosion in Baghlan-i-Markazi, one of the insecure districts. Taliban have a presence in several localities of the district.
