Herat: At least eight people were killed in a roadside mine blast in western Afghanistan’s Herat province on Saturday evening, the Tolonews reported.

“Eight people were killed in a roadside mine blast in Gulran district at around 10 pm. One person is also injured as well,” the Tolonews quoted Herat Police Spokesperson Abdul Ahad Walizada as saying.

The people were travelling in a vehicle to Herat city from Gulran town and from there to Iran.

No one has claimed responsibility for the attack so far.

This comes hours after a suicide attack had taken place in Kabul’s Intercontinental Hotel, where 18 people died, including three terrorists.

The Taliban claimed responsibility for that attack.
