4 children perish in Kandahar blast

Mar 23, 2013 - 19:59

KANDAHAR CITY (PANinfo-icon): Four children were killed and two others wounded by a bomb they were playing with in the Mianishin district of southern Kandahar province on Saturday, officials said.

The roadside bomb exploded in the Zunto area, where the children found it, the governor’s spokesman, Ahmad Javed Faisal, told Pajhwok Afghan News.

He accused the militants of planting the bomb, saying that the children mistook it for a toy. The victims came from the same family, he added. The wounded were evacuated to hospital.

Having lost their face-to-face combat ability with security personnel, the fighters had resorted to planting roadside bombs in a desperate bid to make their presence felt, said the district chief, Rozi Khan.
