Two policemen were killed in a roadside mine blast in northern Baghlan province on Friday night, local officials said.

The incident took place in Dand-e-Ghori area after a police vehicle struck a roadside mine which killed two policemen, provincial police officials said.

No group including the Taliban has claimed responsibility for the blast.

But the police officials said that the placing of the roadside mine was in violation of the recent controversial Dand-e-Ghori deal.

The deal was signed between tribal elders, government officials and the Taliban about a month ago and prevents both military operations and insurgent attacks from being carried out in the area. Dand-e-Ghori is part of Pul-e-Khumri city.
