Roadside bomb in Taliban-controlled area kills Afghan civilians


Officials say a motorbike was hit by a bomb in the Khan Abad district of Kunduz province.

At least seven civilians have been killed in a roadside bomb blast in Afghanistan’s northern Kunduz province, local officials said.

The blast struck a small truck carrying a group of labourers late on Monday in the volatile district of Khan Abad.

According to local officials, the area is under the control of the Taliban armed group, which has staged a number of deadly attacks on Afghan security forces there in recent weeks.

Six people were wounded in Monday’s blast, two of whom are in critical condition, according to the district chief, Hayatullah Amiri.
