A suicide bomb attack has rocked northern Afghanistan, killing at least six people and wounding over a dozen.

The blast occurred in the Seya Gerd district in the northern province of Parwan early on April 5.

Local officials said the suicide bomber detonated his explosives near a school.

No group has claimed responsibility for the attack, although the Taliban has been blamed for similar attacks in the past.

Parwan, a relatively stable province, is the site of the Bagram Airfield, the largest former U.S. base in Afghanistan.

The militants have intensified attacks against Afghan security forces and government targets across the country in the past year.
