HERAT/MAIDAN SHAHAR: A roadside bomb attack left four Afghan National Army (ANA) troops dead and two wounded in Bala Murghab district of Badghis province last night, an army officer said Monday.

A landmine exploded on ANA patrol in Akazai village of Bala Murghab district, killing four troops and wounding two others, an army officer in western Badghis province, told Afghan Islamic Press (AIP).

He said a clash also took place between Taliban and Afghan army troops after the bomb attack but did not caused any casualties to troops, adding it was unclear if Taliban suffered any damage or not.

There was no claim of responsibility by Taliban.
