Taliban spokesman Zabiullah Mojahid, in a statement to media, said the militants had taken the key parts of the district including the district and police headquarters.

Abdul Shukoor Qudusi says the driver was wounded in the explosion late Wednesday night, which set several shops in the area on fire.

Mohammad Arif Noori, a spokesman for the governor of Ghazni Province, said that Taliban insurgents attacked the government compound of Khwaja Umari district.

According to Associated Press, the blistering attack in the Khwaja Omari district was the latest insurgent assault in Ghazni province. Only three rebels were killed and four others wounded, he added.

Ground engagements between militants and security forces accounted for 30 percent of civilian casualties in the January to March period. The attackers planted mines to prevent government reinforcements from coming and quickly took responsibility for the attack.
