The fifth person killed in the explosion is yet to be identified.

Two others were said to be injured in the explosion.

While ISIL has claimed responsibility for Saturday’s rocket attacks at the United States military base in Afghanistan, in which there were no casualties according to NATO and provincial officials.

No one has claimed responsibility for this attack which damaged nearby buildings and shops.

Journalists, activists and other political figures have been targeted, sticky bombs attached to vehicles by magnets have been used in several recent attacks on individuals.

Violence in Afghanistan has spiked even as the Taliban and Afghan government negotiators hold talks in Qatar, trying to hammer out a peace deal that could put an end to decades of war.
