However, the Taliban has not admitted the blast. But it bears all their hallmarks, the BBC reported. They have a significant presence in the area from where they carry out suicide attacks and roadside bomb blasts. Last week, the Kandahar Governor himself was the target of an attempt on his life. "The match was going on and all of a sudden the explosion went off," said witness Abdul Rahman. Body parts were scattered in the area as paramedics rushed the wounded to hospitals.
