Bomb blast on Afghan-Pakistan border

Officials blamed the attack in the town of Spin Boldak in Kandahar province on the hardline Islamist Taliban, who are waging a 10-year insurgency against the Western-backed government in Kabul.

“There was a motorbike bomb blast against border police in Spin Boldak.

Four civilians, one of them a woman, were killed and 10 others were injured,”said Janan, a rapid-reaction police unit commander who uses only one name.

The interior ministry confirmed the deaths and blamed the blast on the “enemies of Afghanistan” — a reference to the Taliban.

Improvised bombs and suicide attacks are the most common weapons used in Taliban attacks. AFP
