Car Bombing Kills 13 in Helmand Province

(Last Updated On: August 28, 2017)

At least 13 including both Afghan army soldiers and civilians, were killed and 19 wounded by a car bomb in the southern Helmand province, officials said.

The spokesman of Helmand governor, Omar Zawak said, a military vehicle targeted in the Nawa district, an area that has seen heavy fighting in recent week.

No group has taken responsibility behind the incident so far.

Afghan security forces claimed they had retaken Nawa district in July but there has been continued fighting in the area since.

The attack comes just days after a suicide bomber in Lashkar Gah killed at least seven people and wounded 40.
