An explosion ripped through the residence of a local Taliban leader in eastern Laghman province of Afghanistan leaving at least four people dead or wounded.

The provincial government media office in a statement said the incident took place early on Monday in the Badpakh district.

The statement further added that a number of insurgents were busy preparing Improvised Explosive Devices when the incident took place.

The deputy shadow district chief of the group Abduul Samad was killed along with a IED maker Pacha Khan in the explosion, the provincial government said.

According to the statement, at least two others including the son of Abdul Samad were wounded in the explosion.

The anti-government armed militant groups including the Taliban insurgents have not commented regarding the report so far.

The anti-government armed militant groups frequently use explosives materials for the roadside bombings and car bombings to target the government staff and security personnel.

However, in majority of such incidents the ordinary civilians are targeted besides such bombings incur casualties to the security personnel and in some cases the Taliban militants themselves are killed or wounded.
