Blast Targets Army Division in Parwan

Two army soldiers were killed and 25 more were wounded in an explosion at an Afghan National Army division at Bagram Airfield, Parwan province, on Friday evening.

The army soldiers were busy in prayer when the explosion happened. 

The type of blast is not known so far, but sources said that the explosion was due to a bomb that was already planted in the area.

Officials from ANA’s Division in Bagram meanwhile rejected the claim of casualties and said that 18 soldiers sustained minor injuries in the explosion.
