FARAH CITY (Pajhwok): A border police unit commander and his guard were killed in a landmine blast in the Juwen district of western Farah province, an official said on Sunday.

The commander, Abdul Manan, was on a patrol in Tapa Khwahran area near the Iranian border on Saturday afternoon when the blast took place, killing him and one of his guards, the district administrative chief said. Samad Yar told Pajhwok Afghan News the blast took place at about 5pm.

A border police officer in the district, Mir Wali, said the blast ripped through a vehicle which was part of a four-vehicle convoy patrolling in the area.

No group has claimed responsibility for the blast that came a week after four national policemen were killed in a roadside bombing in the same district.
