KANDAHAR CITY (Pajhwok): Six members of a family were killed on Monday night when the vehicle they were travelling in struck a roadside bomb in southern Kandahar province, an official said.
The civilians were travelling in Nekah Shela area of the Shah Walikot district when the blast occurred around 8pm, killing six people, the governor’s spokesman, Samim Khpalwak, told Pajhwok Afghan News.
Accusing the Taliban of emplacing the landmine, he said the victims belonged to the same family and their vehicle was completely destroyed by the blast.
Governor Dr. Humayun Azizi condemned the incident as “inhuman and anti-Islam act” in a statement issued from his office.
The statement quoted Azizi as saying the enemies of Afghanistan had waged their war against all Afghans, killing civilians on a daily basis.
The governor called on the Afghans to upraise against those out to destablise the country.
