Car explosion in Afghanistan's Ghazni kills eight policemen

Moscow: At least eight policemen were killed and seven others were injured after a Taliban-hijacked military armored car laden with explosives rammed into a police building in the eastern Afghan province of Ghazni on June 1, the local law enforcement agency said on Sunday.

The blast took place some 4 miles away from the provincial capital on Saturday evening, Sputnik reported.

“Unfortunately, eight personnel of Police Reserve Force unit were martyred and seven others suffered injuries, when a Taliban hijacked Humvee (High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle) vehicle full of explosives slammed the police military unit building, in the provincial capital Ghazni,” Adam Khan Sirat, a provincial police spokesperson said.

The local media outlet also recalled that a similar attack rocked the outskirts of the provincial capital last week, when a bomb-laden military vehicle exploded at a police checkpoint, killing two policemen and injuring 15 other people.
