The news comes as 76 civilians were killed or wounded in separate attacks across the country earlier this week, despite the peace negotiations between the US and the Taliban movement.

According to Reuters, an explosion has occurred outside the police HQ in Kandahar Province.

“Militants detonated a car loaded with explosives, and some gunmen have entered the buildings around our main office”, an anonymous police official said.

At the moment, there is no information about casualties or damage caused by the blast. None of the local militant groups has yet claimed responsibility for the incident.
