PUL-I-ALAM (Pajhwok): At least six people were killed and 20 others wounded as a result of a blast at a wedding ceremony in central Logar province, officials said on Saturday.

The explosion took place in the Safidsang area of Mohammad Agha district at 9pm, said Noor Mohammad Obaidi, the district’s administrative chief.

He told Pajhwok Afghan News the explosion hit a wedding ceremony, leaving six people dead and 20 others wounded. Most of the injured were transferred to Kabulinfo-icon hospitals.

The district’s head linked the bomb attack to a personal enmity. Two singers, hosts and villagers were among the casualties, the official added.

He put the tolls at seven dead and 30 wounded.
