At least four Afghan police officers have been killed and 17 people injured by a suicide truck bomber in eastern Afghanistan.

District police chief Abdul Ghafour was among those injured on December 2.

Four of the injured are reported to be in critical condition.

The attack occurred at the entrance of a district police base in Wardak Province, southwest of Kabul.

Reports say the attacker detonated a small truck packed with explosives as worshippers gathered at the base's mosque for morning prayers.

The Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack.
