    KABUL (Sputnik) - One Afghan soldier was injured in a car bomb blast that suicide attackers staged in the central province of Maidan Wardak, the ministry of interior said on Friday.

    "Two suicide attackers staged a car bomb blast close to a special force base in Maidan Wardak," the ministry said, adding that a soldier was injured.

    The attack was followed by clashes between the special forces and the Taliban radical movement, a source told Sputnik.

    Violent clashes and bomb blasts continue to ravage Afghanistan despite the ongoing peace talks between the government and representatives of the Taliban in the Qatari capital of Doha.
