Roadside bomb kills 11 civilians in Afghanistan
In Afghanistan, at least 11 civilians including four women and three children were killed when a roadside bomb struck a bus in the western province of Badghis on Saturday.
No group has claimed responsibility for the blast but Badghis governor Hessamuddin Shams accused the Taliban of planting the bomb.
Another official from the province, Khodadad Tayeb, confirmed the toll and said that the bus fell into a valley after it was hit by the bomb.
Saturday’s attack came after a series of blasts targeted passenger buses in Kabul last week.
