PUL-I-ALAM (Pajhwok): Two minors have been killed and as many wounded when a mine went off in central Logar province, an official said on Wednesday.

Din Mohammad Darwaish, governor spokesperson, told Pajhwok Afghan News the land mine exploded while four children were playing on a field Tuesday evening in Padkhwab Shana area. The gubernatorial blamed Talibaninfo-icon militants for planting the land mine which killed two children and wounded two more. 

Sangar, a local resident, said the children aged less than 10 and belonged to two different families. He doubted the land mine was an old one left in the area for years.

Taliban militants have not commented about the incident.
