At least 10 people were killed, and several others were injured in an explosion in Mazar-e-Sharif of Afghanistan on Saturday.

According to officials, at least 10 people, including five journalists, were killed in a bomb blast at Tebyan Cultural Centre in Mazar-e-Sharif district.

According to Afghan authorities, the blast occurred at 11:30 AM, due to a landmine explosion.

In this regard, the Taliban government said that action is being taken against the “terrorists” involved in the incident, but no group has so far claimed responsibility for the attack.

The blast comes two days after a suicide attack in Mazar-e-Sharif that killed the provincial governor, Mohammad Daud Muzammil, and two others inside the governor’s house. Mohammad Daud Muzammil was the most important commander of the Afghan Taliban and was blacklisted by the United States.

Mohammad Daud Muzamil was the acting governor of Balkh province of Afghanistan and previously served as governor of Farah and Orzgan provinces on behalf of the Taliban during the Ashraf Ghani government, as well as the head of the military commission for the northern areas of Afghanistan.

According to reports from Afghanistan, Dawood Muzammil is one of the few commanders who carried out deadly operations against ISIS, due to which ISIS had to retreat from Nangarhar and other areas.

Daud Muzammil hailed from the Gereshk district of Afghanistan’s southern Helmand province and belonged to the Pashtun tribe of Noorzai and was seen by some analysts as a strongly anti-Pakistan and Iran-backed militia in Afghanistan.
