PUL-I-KHUMRI (Pajhwok): A radio station building has been damaged in an explosion in northern Baghlan province, an official said on Wednesday.

Police spokesman Ahmad Javed Basharat told Pajhwok Afghan News the roadside explosion took place near the Arman-i-Shahr Radio in Pul-i-Khumri on Tuesday night.

“Security personnel were the target of the bomb that shattered windowpanes of the radio station building,” the police official added.
