At the time, the trucks were parked overnight in Samangan province, as they headed from Uzbekistan towards NATO forces in the south.

The explosive device was attached below one of the trucks, which were parked close together, an intelligence official said.
"Since it was early in the morning, there were not a lot of people around. Otherwise, it could have caused a lot more casualties,'' the official told the BBC.
