Those killed included six police personnel and seven civilians in addition to the bomber, a police official said.

The suicide bombing in Siaguard district of Parwan province took place just one day before holding the four-nation talks in Kabul on Tuesday.

The four-nation talks will discuss the Afghan peace process and find a roadmap for bringing Taliban into negotiating table to end lingering crisis through dialogue.

Taliban militants, according to local observers, would intensify their activities ahead of proposed peace talks and possible sitting with government on negotiating table.
