Kabul: A roadside bomb blast in Afghanistan`s Paktia province Monday killed three members of the family of an advisor to Afghan President Hamid Karzai, media reported.
"Brother of Amanullah Khan Zadran, his uncle and his nephew were killed in the blast," said provincial governor`s spokesperson Rohullah Samoon.
