KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): Seven civilians, including a woman, were killed and two others wounded in a roadside bombing in the Pachiragam district of eastern Nangarhar province on Sunday, the Ministry of Interior (MoI) said.

The blast ripped through the pick-up the civilians were traveling in. Qari Hijrat, the town’s administrative chief, said the incident happened at around 8:30am in Bargholi area, killing seven people and injuring two others, including a child.
