At least five people have been killed and 14 more wounded after Taliban militants launched an attack in the eastern Afghan city of Gardez on Thursday.
According to reports, a truck packed with explosives blew up near a military court.
"Dozens of civilians are feared to be dead and wounded," said an interior ministry spokesman.
It comes just two days after attacks on a hospital and a funeral left at least 56 people dead, with President Ashraf Ghani ordering the military to switch to offensive mode.
This poses a huge blow to the peace process that's currently underway in the war-ravaged nation.
