Afghanistan: Bicycle bomb kills 1, wounds 5 in Ghazni

22nd May 2013

GHAZNI,  (Xinhua): One Afghan civilian was killed and five others were wounded Wednesday morning when an improvised bomb went off in Ghazni city, the provincial capital of eastern Ghazni province, police said.

 

“An Improvised Explosive Device (IED) attached to a bicycle exploded at around 8:40 a.m. local time in third police district in Ghazni city, killing one civilian and wounding five others,” deputy provincial police chief Assadullah Khan told Xinhua.

 

The casualties, including the dead, were shifted to a city hospital and two injured were in critical condition, he added.

 

The obvious target of the attack remained unknown in the city 125 km south of Afghan capital Kabul, he noted.

 

The Taliban-led insurgency has been rampant since the militant group launched an annual offensive late last month against Afghan government forces and about 100,000 NATO-led troops stationed in the country.

 

The Taliban urged civilians to stay away from official gatherings, military convoys and centers regarded as the legitimate targets by militants besides warning people not to support the government and foreign troops.

 

In a separate incident, five militants were killed and one was wounded when Taliban launched an attack against police checkpoint in Shar-e-Buzurg district in the country’s northern province of Badakhshan earlier on Wednesday morning, said provincial government spokesman Abdul Maruf Rasikh.

 

However, Rasikh told Xinhua that no member of the security personnel was injured in the attack in the province 315 km north of Kabul.

 

The Taliban-led insurgency and conflicts claimed the lives of more than 2,800 Afghan security forces and 400 foreign soldiers while leaving 2,754 civilians dead last year in the war-hit central Asian state.
