Roadside bombs kill 5 in Afghanistan
Kabul: Provincial officials say two separate roadside bomb attacks have killed five Afghan civilians in the eastern and southern parts of the country.
Shafiqullah Nang, who is spokesman for the eastern province of Ghazni, said three civilians died today when their minivan was struck by a roadside bomb as they were driving from Dayak district to Ghazni city.
He says that another eight people were wounded, including two women and two children.
In a second explosion, Fared Ayal, a spokesman for the police chief of southern Uruzgan province, said two men died when their car ran over a bomb today.
Roadside bombs are the number one cause of civilian deaths in Afghanistan, and casualties have risen as insurgents step up attacks as foreign troops withdraw.
