6 civilians killed Afghanistan bombings”

As many as four civilians were killed and 14 others wounded in a blast in the eastern Afghan province of Khost on Sunday afternoon.

In the meantime, provincial police chief said the incident took place after explosives planted inside the market went off.

Khairat said the explosion was caused by a "remote-controlled bomb".

Sarhadi Zwak, a spokesman for the provincial governor, said two others were wounded in that attack. There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the blast.

As the holy Muslim month of Ramadan began on May 27, a Taliban vehicle bomber targeted an Afghan militia group in Khost, leaving 13 people dead.

Since the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation combat mission ended in January 2015, the insurgents have been gaining ground in various parts of Afghanistan and now control, influence or are fighting the government in at least 43 per cent of the country, according to the US.

Afghan security forces have been struggling to beat back a resurgent Taliban since US-led North Atlantic Treaty Organisation forces ended their combat mission in 2014.
