“A magnetic bomb attached in a car of tribal elder Hajji Mirza Mohammad exploded at around 01:00 p.m. local time today killing the elder and injuring two others,” Amiri told Xinhua.
The official pointed finger at the Taliban militants, saying the armed outfit by organizing subversive activities was attempting to terrorize the locals.
