"Among the ten dead is Tor himself and one child."
Khogyani said that 14 people were rushed to hospital, revising down an earlier toll of 40 wounded people.
Local residents told Reuters news agency that at least 10 people were killed in the blast.Daesh group´s Afghanistan affiliate later claimed responsibility for the bombing."I didn´t know what happened," he said. "When I turned my face I saw dozens of people were wounded, lying on the ground."
