The local security officials have not yet commented over the blast.

Four people were killed and 14 other injured in a blast in Afghanistan's Khost region on Sunday, said reports.

The blast took place in the underground section of Hamam market in the Khost city after explosive devices were detonated, killing a civilian and another three, the Tolo News quoted Mubarez Zadran, a spokesman for provincial governor, as saying.

No group has claimed responsibility for the attack so far.

Khost is among the relatively peaceful provinces in southeastern parts of the country but the anti-government armed militant groups have recently increased their insurgency activities in this province.

Several terrorist related activities and explosions have been reported in the provincial capital and other parts of the province since the start of the year.
