TALOQAN (Pajhwok): A bomb blast killed two civilians and injured a dozen more in Kalfagan district of northeastern Takhar province last night, an official said on Wednesday.

Police spokesman Khalil Asir told Pajhwok Afghan News the explosives had been planted on a motorbike that went off late Tuesday night.
