CHAGHCHARAN (PANinfo-icon): Two civilians were killed and nearly a dozen others sustained injuries when the passenger coach they were travelling in struck a roadside bomb in western Ghorinfo-icon province, an official said on Saturday.

The coach was en route to Chaghcharan, the provincial capital, from neighbouring Herat province on Friday evening when it hit the explosive device in Dolana district.

Habibullah, the town’s administrative head, told Pajhwok Afghan News some of the injured passengers were in critical condition.

Mohammad Noor, a resident, said the coach was also comprehensively destroyed in the blast. He added the Talibaninfo-icon had planted landmines in the areas few days ago when they attacked a police post.

The provincial police chief also held the Taliban responsibility for the incident.

A Taliban spokesman, Qari Yousuf Ahmadi, who did not comment on the blast, said the fighters clashed with police in the district, injuring four policemen.
