A car blast in Afghanistan’s Badakhshan province killed three people on Monday, including a provincial police chief, the Taliban-Run Afghan interior ministry said.


Two others were injured in the blast near Badakhshan’s police headquarters, interior ministry spokesperson, Abdul Nafi Takor, said, adding that four people had been arrested in connection with the incident.


IS claimed responsibility for the blast, the militant group posted on Telegram. Omar is believed to be the highest Taliban security official slain since the hard-line group seized power in August 2021.
