A suicide car bomb explosion on Thursday in front of the police headquarters in the city killed a conscript and an officer. It also wounded over 40 others including eight women and five children.

The suicide attacker, identified as Abdullah Azizi, was seeking to drive his car into the police headquarters but faced the resistance of the Law Enforcement forces and desperately exploded his car outside the building leaving a number of ordinary people dead and wounded.

The Ansar al-Furqan terrorist group has officially claimed responsibility for the attack.
