MEHTARLAM (Pajhwok): A girl was killed and six people were wounded when an insurgent-fired mortar shell hit a house in eastern Laghman province, the governor said on Friday.

A wedding function was underway in the house on Thursday night when the mortar shell struck in the Dado Kala area of Alingarfistrict, a statement from the governor’s office said.

As a result, a 7-year-old girl was killed and six other people, including three children, were wounded. The injured are under treatment at the Mehtarlam Civil Hospital.

Deeply shocked by the incident, Governor Abdul Jabbar Naeemi denounced the attack as an un-Islamic act. He accused the rebels of targeting innocent people.

The governor said he directed the public healthinfo-icon director and the hospital administration to ensure the best possible medical care of the injured.
