Officials in the eastern Afghan province of Ghazni say two people were killed in a suicide attack.
Mohammad Ali Ahmadi, the deputy provincial governor, told RFE/RL that the suicide bomber detonated his explosive vest on January 26 near a police post in the Qale Sabaz area, killing one police officer and one civilian.
Ahmadi said three other people were injured in the attack.
However, the head of the local hospital, Baz Mohammad Hemat, said 13 people had been brought to the hospital for injuries they suffered in the attack.
No group has so far claimed responsibility for the suicide bombing.
