Roadside bombs kill 7 civilians in Afghanistan
Kabul: Two separate roadside bomb blasts have killed seven Afghan civilians in eastern Afghanistan.
The Interior Ministry says the explosions occurred on Monday morning in Ghazni province.
A vehicle struck one of the bombs in Qarabagh district, killing four civilians, including two children. Another vehicle hit a roadside bomb in Ghazni city, killing three civilians.
Separately, the UN World Food Program announced on Monday that it is reducing food assistance to millions of Afghans in about half the country`s 34 provinces because of a shortage of more than USD 200 million.
The World Food Program had planned to help feed more than seven million people in Afghanistan this year, but a shortage of donor funds means 3.8 million people will be assisted.
