A roadside bomb killed six railway personnel in Afghanistan’s Herat province, an official said.

Herat governor, Sayed Abdul Wahid Qatali said the incident took place around 2:45 PM on Saturday.

Qatali added that the bomb targeted a vehicle carrying the Khaf railway personnel in the Ghorian District of Herat Province.

The governor didn’t provide further details about the incident.

So far, no group or individual has claimed responsibility for the blast.

This comes as the fourth section of the Khaf-Herat railway is under process and the third section was inaugurated last year.

As the Afghanistan peace process between the government and the Taliban group is in progress, violence and insecurity have increased.
