Sharing is caring!


Many people are feared dead in a car bomb explosion at a busy market in eastern Afghanistan’s Paktika province.

The attacker drove a 4×4 vehicle into the market in Orgun district and detonated the explosives, a senior official told the BBC.

The market was crowded, full of people doing their shopping at the time of the attack, the official added.

Orgun is one of Paktika’s safest areas, though members of the Haqqani militant network are thought to have a presence.‎
