11 Civilians Killed in Afghanistan Landmine Attack
At least 11 people were killed in northern Afghanistan, when their vehicle ran over a landmine. Several children were killed in the attack which is being blamed on the Taliban.
Neither the Taliban or any other terror group has claimed responsibility for the Saturday attack. The attack came hours before Taliban leaders and United Nations officials met in Qatar to discuss the Afghan peace process.
The attack took place in Afghanistan’s northern province of Badgis, and attacked a vehicle travelling to the city of Qala-e-Naw. The roadside bombs in Afghanistan have attacked Afghan security forces, judges, government officials, civil society activists and journalists in recent months.
