KANDAHAR CITY (Pajhwok): At least 15 civilians were killed and four others, including a woman, injured on Monday when a roadside bomb ripped through two pick-up vehicles in the Maiwand district of southern Kandahar province, an official said.

The explosion that took place on the Kandahar-Herat Highway in the afternoon in Gilan Kachi area followed a car suicide blast targeting a convoy of ISAF personnel in nearby Tormanda area, the governor’s spokesman, Dawa Khan Minapal, told Pajhwok Afghan News.

The foreign troops cordoned off the area after the suicide attack and had not been allowing vehicles to proceed on the highway, prompting some drivers to divert to a side road, he said.
