POL-E-KHOMRI, Afghanistan - A suicide bomber blew up a senior official and 14 others outside a government office in the northern Afghan province of Baghlan on Monday, police said.

The bomber targeted Mohammad Rasoul Mohseni, head of the provincial council office, a consultative body that reports to the provincial governor.

He was killed immediately at the building's front gate when the militant detonated explosives strapped to his body. Thirteen people were wounded in the mid-morning attack.

"He was dressed in the uniform of the Afghan national police," provincial police spokesman Jawid Basharat said of the bomber.
