Two people were killed in a bomb attack in front of the district governor’s office in Logar province east of the capital, Kabul, Afghan officials said.

Salim Sallhe, spokesman for the provincial governor, said that the Taliban were behind the massive explosion in front of the district governor’s compound in Charkh district, 60 kilometers east of Kabul, that shook buildings in the area.

The Taliban spokesman, Zabihullah Mujahid, claimed responsibility for the attack in an email sent to The Associated Press. He said the attack was a truck bombing.

Abdul Wali Wakil, a member of the provincial council, said the bomber was on foot and wearing police uniform. 

The bomber detonated his explosives outside the main gate of the compound, after which a group of Taliban fighters began shooting at the building.
