At least 50 people have been killed in a car bomb explosion at a busy market in eastern Afghanistan's Paktika province.

The market was crowded, full of people doing their shopping at the time of the attack.

The eastern province of Paktika shares a border with Pakistan's restive and volatile tribal areas.

There have been no claims yet for today’s attack.
