Car bomb explosion in Afghanistan

KABUL - At least four Taliban insurgents were killed in an explosion triggered by a premature blast in a Vehicle-borne Improvised Explosive Device.

The Ministry of Interior (MoI) in a statement said Monday that the explosion took place in western Farah province of Afghanistan.

The statement further added that four Taliban insurgents riding a motor bomb were on their way to reach their target when the explosives went off.

The blast took place on Sunday evening in the vicinity of Dand Jal village in Anar Dara district, according to MoI.

The anti-government armed militant groups including the Taliban insurgents have not commented regarding the report so far.

In the meantime, the ministry of interior says the blast not inflicted casualties to anyone else including the local residents or security personnel.

Farah is among the relatively volatile provinces in West of Afghanistan where the Taliban insurgents are active in some of its remote districts and often carry out insurgency activities.

Roadside bombings, coordinated attacks on security posts and government institutions, car bombings, clashes with the security forces are often reported from the province.
