FARAH CITY (PANinfo-icon): Three children were killed and four others injured in a bomb blast in the capital of western Farah province on Sunday, an official said.

The blast took place inside a scrap depot in the 5th police district of Farah City, the governor’s spokesman, Abdul Rahman Zhwandai, told Pajhwok Afghan News.

A resident of the area, Shamsuddin, said the children were playing in front of a scrap shop when the explosion happened. The blast is believed to have resulted from unexploded ordnance.
