The attack targeted police vehicles, Tolo News reports, citing local officials.

The attack left at least 18 people dead and six more injured, including two children, according to Interior Ministry spokesman Najib Danish.

The car bomb attack “targeted an Afghan militia force that works with US forces,” according to Bilal Sarwary, a journalist based in the area. Speaking to RT, he also said that the attack occurred in a very crowded place near a busy taxi stand. The area is a stronghold of the Taliban-affiliated Haqqani network, according to Sarwary.

There is no information so far on who is responsible for the assault.

It comes as militants attacked security forces in the Qadis District of the northwestern province of Badghis, spokesman for the provincial governor Zahir Bahand confirmed, according to Reuters.
