Suicide bomber strikes at Afghan-Pakistan border

Suicide bomber strikes at Afghan-Pakistan border

An Afghan official says a suicide bomber dressed as a woman blew himself up at a key crossing at the Afghan-Pakistan border, killing one policeman and wounding four others.
Provincial government spokesman Ahmad Zia Abdulazai said a number of civilians were also wounded in Tuesday's blast at the Torkham border crossing, in the eastern Afghan province of Nangarhar.
The Taliban militants regularly launch suicide bombings targeting Afghan and foreign security forces, but civilians are often among the victims.
The Torkham is one of the main international border crossings between Pakistan and Afghanistan.
