Bombing In Eastern Afghanistan Kills At Least Four Civilians

At least four people were killed due to a landmine explosion in southeastern Khost province of Afghanistan on Sunday, media reports said.

Provincial police chief Faizullah Khairat said the blast occurred at around midday on September 17 at a marketplace in the provinceial capital, Khost.

The blast took place in the underground section of Hamam market in the Khost city after explosive devices were detonated, killing a civilian and another three, the Tolo News quoted Mubarez Zadran, a spokesman for provincial governor, as saying.

No one claimed either attack, but the Taliban are active in both provinces.

The blast reportedly left 14 others injured.
