A Humvee Armored Personnel Carrier packed with explosives went off prematurely among a group of Taliban militants in southern Kandahar province of Afghanistan leaving at least 37 militants dead.

The local officials are saying that the incident has taken place in the vicinity of Maruf district of Kandahar.

Provincial governor’s spokesman Aziz Ahmad Azizi confirmed the incident and said a group of militants who were looking to target a compound of the Afghan army with explosives-laden Humvee APC, were killed after the vehicle-borne improvised explosive device went off prematurely.

Aziz further added that the explosion has left at least 37 militants dead and a number of others wounded.

The Taliban militants have rejected the claims by the local officials and claim that no such incident has taken place.

Kandahar has been among the relatively calm provinces but the security situation in some of its districts has deteriorated during the recent months.
