AfghanistanAt least twenty two people were wounded following a suicide attack in central Logar province of Afghanistan earlier this afternoon.

According to local government officials, the incident took place in Mohammad Agha district after a suicide bomber targeted the Afghan Local Police (ALP) forces.

The district police chief Matifullah Khan said the incident took place around 2:30 pm local time, leaving at least 8 ALP forces and 15 civilians wounded.

He said the suicide bomber targeted the vehicles of the ALP forces while in Pul-e-Kandahari area of Mohammad Agha district.

No group including the Taliban militants has so far claimed responsibility behind the incident.

Logar is among the relatively volatile provinces in central Afghanistan where anti-government armed militant groups are actively operating and frequently carry out insurgency activities.

ٰThis comes as the Taliban-led insurgency has been rampant since the group launched its summer offensive earlier this year and since then launched numerous attacks across the country including capital Kabul.
