Seven killed by road­side bomb

Los Angeles Times - - THE WORLD -

An Afghan of­fi­cial said a road­side bomb­ing killed seven peo­ple east of Kabul.

Din Mo­ham­mad Dar­wish, spokesman for the Logar pro­vin­cial gover­nor, said a ve­hi­cle oc­cu­pied by two fam­i­lies was struck by a road­side bomb the Baraki Barak dis­trict.

Dar­wish blamed the Tal­iban for the bomb. He said four women, two chil­dren and a man were killed.

No one im­me­di­ately claimed re­spon­si­bil­ity for the attack but road­side bombs have been a weapon of choice for Tal­iban in­sur­gents. Such bombs tar­get of­fi­cials and se­cu­rity forces, but also kill many civil­ians.
