Roadside bombs killed not less than 5 civilians and wounded seven others on Friday in Afghanistan, provincial officers mentioned, whereas the Islamic state group claimed accountability for the killing of a policewoman a day earlier.

Omer Zwak, spokesman for the provincial governor in southern Helmand province, mentioned the 5 killed had been travelling by automotive close to Lashkar Gah, the capital of the province. The demise toll could rise, he added.

In a separate roadside bomb assault in western Herat province, seven ladies travelling in a minivan had been wounded, the provincial governor’s workplace mentioned.

No one instantly claimed accountability for the assaults, however Afghanistan has seen a nationwide spike in bombings, focused killings, and violence on the battlefield as peace negotiations in Qatar between the Taliban and the Afghan authorities have stalled.

Meanwhile, in a press release late Thursday, the Islamic State group claimed accountability for the killing of a policewoman in jap Nangarhar province earlier that day. The assertion mentioned that she was working with the “apostate” Afghan safety companies.
