Afghan Kabul Blast Result in Bomber, Policemen and 6 Others Killed

Suicide bomber targets electoral officials in Kabul

According to police, a suicide bomber on foot, detonated his explosives close to the gate of the offices.

Afghanistan's first parliamentary elections since 2010 were held against a backdrop of near-daily attacks by the Taliban, who have seized almost half the country and have repeatedly refused offers to negotiate with the Afghanistan government.

Ministry of Interior (MoI) on Monday said they have arrested 60 people in connection with crimes related to parliamentary elections that took place on October 21 and 22 across the country and on October 27 in Kandahar.

Underscoring Afghanistan's precarious security situation, a suicide attack outside a military compound in Afghanistan's central Wardak province south of the Afghan capital Kabul killed six people, provincial council member Sharifullah Hottak told The Associated Press in a telephone interview.

Voting started at 7.00 a.m. local time [0230 GMT] and is due to end at 4.00 p.m. local time [1230GMT], according to Nematullah Wardak, head of the country's Independent Election Commission (IEC).

The election, which the Taliban had vowed to attack, was marred by deadly violence, with hundreds killed or wounded in scores of attacks.

Kandaharians will cast their votes in 173 polling stations across the province.

People in Kandahar Province went to the polls on Saturday, while elections have yet to be held in central Ghazni Province, which is still reeling from the Taliban's takeover in August.

On October 20, Afghanistan held its much-delayed parliamentary elections, the provisional results of which will be announced on November 10 and final ones on December 20.

The US invaded Afghanistan in 2001 as part of Washington's so-called war on terror.
