The target of the attack remained unknown.

The Taliban-led insurgency has been rampant since April 24 when the militant group launched its so-called annual spring offensive in various places of the militancy-plagued Afghanistan which had claimed hundreds of lives including militants, security personnel and civilians.

Earlier on Saturday, three children were killed and three other children wounded when a bomb was detonated in a shop near a religious school in southern Kandahar province, the provincial government said.

More than 970 civilians were killed and nearly 1,960 others wounded in conflicts and Taliban-led insurgency in the first four months of 2015, according to official figures released by the UN mission in the country.
