Roadside Bomb Kills 6 Civilians in Afghanistan
A roadside bomb struck a microbus in eastern Afghanistan on Monday,
killing six people, an Afghan official said. Arif Noori, a spokesman for
the governor of the Ghazni province, said women and children were among
those killed in the blast, which also wounded three people. He said the
bomb was planted by the Taliban.
Elsewhere in Ghazni, at least three local police and 10 Taliban
fighters were killed in clashes, Noori said. Elsewhere in Afghanistan, a
suicide bomber wounded at least 10 civilians when he struck near the
education department in the eastern city of Jalalabad, said Attahullah
Khogyani, spokesman for the provincial governor of Nangarhar province.
He said three other suicide bombers were shot and killed by security
forces as they tried to enter the building. He said a vehicle filled
with explosives was found near the scene of the attack.
In a separate attack in the same province, a sticky bomb wounded 14
civilians in the Chaparhar district, according to hospital spokesman
Inamullah Miakhail. Gen. Ghulam Sanayee Stanekzai, provincial police
chief in Nangarhar, said the bomb went off as people were shopping in a
market, AP reported.
