Roadside bombing kills 3 in Helmand

Roadside bombing kills 3 in Helmand

Feb 25, 2013 - 15:14

LASHKARGAH (PAN): Three civilians were killed and six others wounded when a car struck a roadside bomb in the Marja district of southern Helmand province on Monday, an official said.      


The incident took place around 9:30am in the Yazdah area, the district chief, Mohammad Fahim Musazai, told Pajhwok Afghan News. 

He blamed the “enemies of peace” -- a euphemism that Afghan officials frequently use for the Taliban -- for planting roadside bombs, which often kill ordinary citizens.

The injured were evacuated to the Lashkargah Emergency Hospital. A hospital official confirmed receiving six wounded people, including two children and their parents. Two of them were discharged after being administered first aid.
