GHAZNI/KABUL: A suicide car bomber killed three people and wounded dozens near a NATO-run training base on Friday, in an attack claimed by the Taliban as revenge for the execution of its militants.

Several NATO soldiers were lightly wounded, a spokesman for the US-led International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) said, without giving further details.

A police spokesman said the blast was near “a joint coordination office” for the Afghan army, police and NATO troops in Maidan Shar, the capital of Wardak province.

“From this centre they go for military operations,” Abdul Wali told AFP.

The base is close to the provincial governor’s office and two of his bodyguards were among the dead, his spokesman Shahidullah Shahid told AFP.

“We have three killed – two bodyguards of the governor and a 10-year-old girl. Ninety people were wounded, 75 men, 11 women and four children.”

Hours later, a second suicide bomber detonated his explosive-packed car near a joint Afghan-NATO run border post in the town of Torkham in the eastern Afghan province of Nangarhar.

Five Afghan security guards were wounded, provincial border police spokesman Edris Mohmand told AFP.

An ISAF spokesman in Kabul confirmed the Nangarhar attack, saying it caused no casualties to ISAF forces.

Taliban insurgents claimed responsibility for both the blasts, saying they were to avenge the execution on Wednesday of four Taliban members on death row in Kabul. “It was a car bomb by our mujahid on a military training centre,” Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid told AFP about the first blast.
“It was a revenge attack by our mujahed in response to the execution of four mujahidin by the Kabul administration.”

The four executed Taliban members were among a total of 14 prisoners hanged over two days this week in rare mass executions.

The Taliban, who are leading an insurgency against the Western-backed government and 100,000 NATO troops, had warned there would be “heavy repercussions” for government officials if any of their militants were executed.
