Roadside bomb kills 7 Afghan family members

31 March 2015, 11:02

Kabul - A deputy official says a roadside bombing in a remote province in eastern Afghanistan has killed seven people, all members of the same family.

The deputy police chief in Ghazni province says the bombing took place on Monday afternoon in Andar district. Asadullha Ensafi says the mini bus the family was riding in struck the bomb and all seven people from the family died — three women, three children and a man.

No one immediately claimed responsibility for the attack but Ensafi blamed the Taliban. It was the third such roadside bombing this month in Ghazni province.

Roadside bombs have been a weapon of choice for Taliban insurgents for many years, and are often used to target officials and members of the security forces but also kill many civilians.
