KANDAHAR CITY (PAN): Four people were killed and 22 others wounded during a bomb explosion in the Ganj area of Kandahar City on Monday morning, an official said.

Javed Faisal, the governor's spokesman, told Pajhwok Afghan News the bomb had been placed in a handcart. The blast occurred at 9.30am, he added.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the bombing in the Bagh Pul area, west of the southern city -- the birthplace of the Talibaninfo-icon movement.

Meanwhile, President Hamid Karzai vehemently denounced the explosion. Targeting civilians in the holy month of Ramadaninfo-icon was against all Islamic and human norms, he said.

In a statement from his office, the president called the attack an act of enmity against Islam and extended his sincere condolences to the victims’ families.
