Local Editor

At least 13 people were killed and several more injured in a bombing attack claimed by Taliban on a convoy of troops in Afghanistan's Helmand province.

"A suicide bomber detonated an explosive-filled car as the Afghan National Army convoy passed a small market in Nawa District of Helmand," said the spokesman for the provincial governor, Omar Zwak, on Sunday.

The spokesman noted that civilians and members of the military were among the dead and injured.

A local medical source claimed that 19 people had been injured in the blast.
"The majority of the dead belong to Afghan forces and most of the wounded are civilians," he added.

Following the incident, the Taliban claimed responsibility by directly sending messages to the media.

The attack came just a few days after at least five people were killed and over two dozen wounded when a car bomb exploded at a police headquarters in Afghanistan's southern Helmand province.

The blast took place in Lashkargah, Helmand's provincial capital, on Wednesday, with the Taliban militant group claiming responsibility for the bombing.

Taliban terrorists warned that they will be stepping up their attacks until the US forces fully withdraw from Afghanistan after more than a decade and half of occupation.
