MAIMANA (Pajhwok): Two people were killed and three others wounded during a roadside bombing in northern Faryab province on Saturday.

Col. Mohammad Naeem Andarabi, the deputy police chief, told Pajhwok Afghan News the victims were going to a local desert in Sabzposh district for recreation.

The vehicle they were travelling in struck the roadside bomb in Ghazari area at 9am, he said, blaming the Talibaninfo-icon for planting the explosive device.

A relative of one of the victims, meanwhile, said the three wounded boys were in critical condition. The injured were evacuated to the district clinic.
