PUL-I-KHUMRI (Pajhwok): A roadside bomb left three civilians dead in the Dushi district of northern Baghlan province on Wednesday when the car they were travelling in hit a roadside bomb.

Javed Basharat, the provincial police spokesman, told Pajhwok Afghan News the car was heading to Pul-i-Khumri when it struck the bomb, leaving all the three passengers dead on the spot. 

Those killed in the explosion were aged between 18 and 25 years. Earlier, a similar blast left 13 civilians, including womeninfo-icon and children, dead in the Dan-e-Shahabuddin area of the province.

Reports say at least 2,959 people were killed and 5,656 others injured last year in bombings and other violence.
