    The bomb had been planted on an island in the centre of the road, a defence ministry official told the AFP news agency.
    There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the bombing.

    The attack came after a suicide attack in the eastern city of Jalalabad which killed two soldiers from the Nato military alliance, and wounded another five.
