LASHKARGAH (Pajhwok): A bomber struck near an Afghan National Army (ANA) post in the Nad Ali district of southern Helmand province on Sunday, an official said.

Omar Zwak, the governor’s spokesman, told Pajhwok Afghan News the car bombing took place close to an ANA brigade at around 7am. He had no information about casualties.

An army official, speaking on condition of anonymity, confirmed the attack and said the bomber was identified and shot by the soldiers close to the checkpoint.

Meanwhile, another source said two people were killed and four others wounded in the bombing. An official at the Emergency-run hospital also spoke of casualties.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the explosion, but officials often blame Talibaninfo-icon and Islamic State militants for acts of terrorism.
