Police officer Ahmed Baashane told journalists the explosion was caused by a car bomb,  but it was unclear whether a suicide bomber was involved. 

“The latest death toll we have suggests that up to 11 innocent people were killed in the blast, ” he said. 

The number of casualties may rise, an official he said.
