The attack happened Wednesday near a park in the city of Maimanah, the capital of Faryab province.

Police officials say four of the dead are police officers.

Also Wednesday, NATO said a bombing in northern Afghanistan killed two coalition service members. It did not give additional details, and it is unclear if the two attacks are related.
