A car bombing outside a sports stadium in Afghanistan’s Helmand Province has ended the lives of at least a dozen people and wounded at least 40 others, according to The Associated Press, citing Afghan officials.

The blast took place outside Ghazi Muhammad Ayoub Khan stadium in Lashkar Gha when an attacker drove a car into a crowd near the main gate at the conclusion of a wrestling match, the BBC reported. No one has claimed the attack.

The deadly bombing is the latest in a string of fatal attacks over the past few months. A suicide bomber killed 31 people and injured dozens more earlier this week in an attack near Kabul University in the Afghan capital. The attack was carried out by an Islamic State jihadi

Taliban gunmen raided the Intercontinental Hotel in Kabul, killing 22 people in January. A few days later, ISIS fighters set off a car bomb outside a children’s charity, killing three and injuring more than 20 others. Taliban extremists then detonated an ambulance filled with explosives, killing about one hundred people and wounding many others.
