A suicide and gun attack on a police training centre on Tuesday in southeast Afghanistan has killed at least 32 people and wounded more than 200.
Security officials have confirmed that Toryalai Abdyani, the police chief for Paktia province, was killed in Tuesday morning's deadly suicide bombing in Gardez City.
According to Afghan media, the incident happened shortly after 8.30 am local time. Security officials said two vehicles were used in the attack - one truck bomb and one Humvee 'bomb' - on the police training college.
Following the explosions, insurgents stormed the centre and by mid-day clashes were still ongoing.
The victims include "women, students and police", Hedayatullah Hamidi, public health director in Gardez, the capital of Paktia province, told AFP.
