Twin suicide bombers hit Afghan Market

LATEST NEWS/KANDAHAR: Twin suicide bombers on a motorcycle struck an Afghan market in the southern province of Nimroz on Monday, killing themselves but causing no other casualties, officials said.

The interior ministry said the attackers with “suicide-loaded vests” blew up their motorcycle at around 8:50 am (0420 GMT) in the Haji Zahid market of Dilaram district, but that “fortunately nobody was killed or injured”.

Government and police officials said there was a nearby police post, but that the target was unclear.

“The attack took place near the Haji Sharif roundabout and a police checkpost was also nearby,” Nimroz police chief Abdul Jabar Pordili told AFP.

A spokesman for the Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack, but gave no further information.

The militia have led a 10-year insurgency against the Afghan government and 140,000 US-led foreign troops since they were ousted from power in the 2001 US-led invasion.
