The local officials in southern Kandahar province are saying that the casualties toll have climbed in the deadly car bomb explosion in Kandahar city.

Provincial governor’s spokesman Mohammad Daud Ahmadi confirmed that at least 16 people have been killed in the explosion and there are fears that the death toll will further climb.

He said at least 38 people have also sustained injuries in the attack but did not elaborate further regarding their health condition.

However, another source had said at least 9 people have been killed and more than 30 others have sustained injuries in the attack.
