17 people including ten policemen killed in Takhar, Kabul

Alice Wells, a US principal deputy assistant secretary of state in charge of South and Central Asian affairs, said Afghan President Ashraf Ghani's offer of talks with the Taliban without any preconditions was the "most specific and forward-leaning proposal" for peace since the USA -led invasion in 2001.

In her remarks, the Pakistani envoy said, while the peace talks would be Afghan-led and Afghan owned, the other parties involved, including the USA, will need to be engaged in the negotiating process.

"The bomber failed to get inside to target the gathering", he said.

TOLO News reported that the explosion happened in Kabul's PD6, close to a ceremony commemorating the anniversary of the death of Abdul Ali Mazari, the former leader of the Islamic Unity Party of Afghanistan, who was killed by the Taliban in 1995.

In Afghanistan, at least seventeen people including ten policemen were killed in two separate incidents in Northern Takhar province and Kabul on Friday. He said the number of the dead rose to nine and 18 wounded in the Kabul bombing. Shah Shir Azara, a security marshal at the site, said 13 people had been killed.

A suicide bomber on foot blew himself up in Kabul's Shiite area on March 9, killing at least seven people, officials said, as militants dial up pressure on the war-weary Afghan capital.

Smoking Orangutan in Indonesian 'Death Zoo' Enrages Activists
Animal rights activists from across the globe are outraged after an orangutan was filmed smoking a cigarette at an Indonesian zoo. The pictures show a visitor throwing in a half-smoked cigarette being thrown into 22-year-old Odon's enclosure at Bandung Zoo.

The statement said that Pakistan reiterates its unequivocal condemnation of terrorism in all forms and manifestations and expresses solidarity with the government and people of Afghanistan in their fight against the menace of terrorism.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack. Afghanistan's minority Shiites, who are mostly Hazaras, have lately been frequently targeted in militant attacks, either by the Taliban or the Islamic State affiliate operating in Afghanistan.

A Taliban spokesman claimed its fighters have overrun the base and surrounding 12 security posts, killing almost 30 Afghan forces.

The continuing presence of large numbers of terrorist groups and foreign terrorist fighters in Afghanistan pose a threat to the long-term stability of Afghanistan, its neighbours, including Pakistan, and the entire region, the Pakistani envoy said.

Members of the local police who were sent to assist the soldiers were ambushed by the Taliban while on their way to the outpost in the remote district of Khwaja Ghar.
