At least ten people are dead and over thirty three others injured after a bomb detonated at a volleyball game in Afghanistan on Sunday.

Police said that no one claimed responsibility for the attack but added that three officers were killed at police checkpoints in the neighboring Nangarhar province after the Islamic State group attacked their posts.

Authorities said a motorcycle armed with explosives was placed at the volleyball court and detonated during the sports match.

The chief of police in the Paktika province, Zarawar Zahid, said that several children were injured as a result of the explosion.
