The acting governor of Afghanistan’s Badakhshan province has been killed in a suicide attack on Tuesday.
According to the French news agency AFP, in the city of Faizabad in the Afghan province of Badakhshan, a suicide bomber rammed his car full of explosives into the car in which the deputy governor of the province, Nisar Ahmad Ahmadi, was riding.
Muazuddin Ahmadi, the head of culture and information in the province, says that the target of this attack was the vehicle carrying Nisar Ahmad Ahmadi.
As a result of the attack, the acting governor and his driver were killed, while six others were injured.
No group has yet claimed responsibility for the attack.
In December last year, the head of the police force of the province was killed in a suicide bombing, which was claimed by Daesh, which is active in Afghanistan.
The head of the mining department was also killed in a bomb attack in April last year.
Since the withdrawal of the United States from Afghanistan and the seizure of power by the Taliban, ISIS has maintained its presence as a formidable military force.
The militant group has so far killed and injured hundreds of people in its attacks in Afghanistan.
