At least five people were killed and nine others wounded after two roadside improvised explosive device (IED) blasts in Jalrez district (Maidan Wardak province) on Tuesday, October 20. No group has claimed immediate responsibility for the attack.
Further attacks are to be likely in the area in the medium term.
Those in Maidan Wardak province are advised to monitor developments in their own particular area of operations through a range of multi-source intelligence advisories and should heed all instructions issued by local authorities or their home governments.
The security environment in Afghanistan remains complex. Professional security advice and support should be sought prior to travel.
