A suicide car bomber has killed at least 89 people in eastern Afghanistan.

Mohammad Reza Kharoti, an administration chief in the Urgun district of Paktika province, says the attack also wounded more than 40 others.

He says the bomber detonated his vehicle full of explosives near a mosque and a market on Tuesday. All the casualties are civilians.

No group immediately claimed responsibility for the attack.

"The number of victims may increase," said General Zahir Azimi.
