PUL-E-KHUMRI, Afghanistan, April 22 (Xinhua) -- At least one civilian was killed and four others injured as a roadside bomb struck their car outside Pul-e-Khumri, the capital of northern Baghlan province, on Sunday, a provincial police spokesman said.
"A mine planted by militants struck a car in Khawja Alwan area outside provincial capital Pul-e-Khumri city at around noon today, killing one civilian on the spot and wounding four others," Zabihullah Shija told Xinhua.
Without blaming any militant groups, the spokesman said that Taliban insurgents are active in the area.
Taliban militants who are largely relying on roadside and suicide bombings are yet to claim responsibility for the attack.
Earlier in the day, a suicide attack in Kabul claimed 10 lives and injured 56 others.
