ASADABAD (PANinfo-icon): Four children were wounded by a Talibaninfo-icon-fired mortar shell in Manogai district of eastern Kunar province on Monday, an official said.

Fired during a clash, the shell landed in the house of Gulzada at 11am, the district police chief, Abdur Rahman Bashardost, told Pajhwok Afghan News.

He said the injured, including minor girls, were under treatment at a district hospital. The fighters were still firing at security forces in the area, the district chief added.

District council chief, Yar Pacha, said the incident happened at a time when residents were offering funeral prayers for two people killed by the militants a day earlier.
