  • Security personnel near the army base hit by a suicide bomber on the outskirts of Ghazni

The director of Ghazni hospital has confirmed 34 people died and many others were injured.

At least 30 policemen were killed and over 20 others wounded after a suicide auto bomb hit a military camp in Ghazni city, capital of Afghanistan's eastern Ghazni province, on Sunday, a local official confirmed.

The army base on the outskirts of the provincial capital, also named Ghazni, was manned by Afghan special forces, witnesses told VOA.

Zahirshah Nikmal, head of the local public health department, said the death toll of the attack on the public protection unit has risen to 31, with 24 wounded, and the victims are mostly military personnel. It was not immediately clear why there was a discrepancy.

It came as the government and Taliban are engaged in peace talks to end the war in the impoverished country that has killed tens of thousands of people in almost two decades.

In another suicide vehicle bomb attack on Sunday, one civilian was killed and 20 others wounded in the southern city of Qalat in the province of Zabul, provincial police chief Hekmatullah Kochi told AFP.

No group has claimed responsibility for the attack, but local officials blamed Taliban militants for the attack.

Afghanistan has seen a spate of vehicle bombings over the last few months, despite peace talks now under way between the Kabul government and the Taliban in Qatar.

Brutal attacks have killed more than 50 people in Kabul in recent weeks, including two assaults on educational centres and a rocket attack.

Afghan officials, however, have expressed concerns that a rapid reduction in American troops could strengthen the negotiating hand of the Taliban. Since the signing of the February deal between the United States and the Taliban, there has been a near-cessation of large Taliban-claimed attacks in urban parts of the country.
