  • One dead, 22 injured in Chaman blast near Pak-Afghan border

Back in May, Pakistan temporarily closed the Chaman border after at least 10 civilians were martyred and 42 were injured in unprovoked firing and shelling from the Afghan side.

All the injured have been shifted to the Civil Hospital Chaman, where the doctors said that the death toll might further rise as some of the injured people are in critical condition. "A 12-year-old boy succumbed to his serious injuries during treatment", a hospital source said.

According to the reports, the attack took place at about 6:35 p.m. local time when a suicide bomber detonated his explosives-laden vest near a security forces vehicle in Chaman, a city located on the Pakistan-Afghanistan border, killing one citizen on the spot and leaving 17 others injured.

Security has been tightened in and around the border in the aftermath of the explosion.

The homegrown Pakistani Taliban, Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), normally claims responsibility behind such attacks.
