Eight killed in Afghan roadside bombing
At least eight civilians were killed Sunday when a bus was hit by a roadside bomb in Afghanistan's Kandhar province, Xinhua reported.
"The minibus was travelling from neighbouring Helmand province to Kandahar early Sunday morning. But the ill-fated bus touched off a roadside bomb, killing all eight civilians aboard on the spot," said a security official.
The official blamed Taliban militants for planting the bomb in the province, 450 km from Kabul.
The Taliban were yet to comment.
