A suicide bomber struck a crowded Afghan bazaar, killing four civilians and wounding another 14 in a remote town in the east of the country.
"Four civilians were martyred and another 14 were wounded," Faizanullah Pattan, the provincial governor's spokesperson told the AFP news agency on Monday, adding that he did not know what the attacker's target had been.
There were no government offices or military patrols in the area where the incident happened in the small town of Najeel Khail in Alishing district of Laghman province, about 100km east of the capital Kabul.
The explosives were strapped to the bomber's body, the spokesman said.
A wave of Taliban suicide bombings has accompanied the militants' announcement of the start of their annual spring offensive late last month.
