    Karzai denounces Kandahar blast

    KABUL (PAN): President Hamid Karzai on Wednesday denounced a bomb attack that killed four civilians and injured 10 others in southern Kandahar province.

    The president called the explosion in the Spin Boldak border town a cowardly act against civilians by the enemies of Afghanistan, a reference to the Taliban.

    The incident took place at around 10:30am when an explosives-rigged motorcycle exploded at the dry port near the Afghanistan-Pakistan friendship gate.

    A statement from his office quoted the president as saying: “This terrorist attack is an anti-Islamic act of Afghanistan’s enemies who are intent upon killing Muslims.”

    Karzai extended his condolences to victims’ families and prayed for the early recovery of the injured.
