#1 Afghan Army EOD skills are still lagging. Generally they are blown them in place (BIP) using diesel fuel by the Afghans. Sounds like they tried to retrieve this one and it had an anti-tamper divice (Russian or Chinese AP mine) daisy chained to a couple more; possibly command wired to Taliban guy with klacker hiding nearby (always look for wires); or they attempted to take it back to the office.
