Landmine kills 5 people in Afghanistan’s Kandahar


A landmine explosion in Afghanistan’s Kandahar Province has killed at least five civilians and injured three others, officials say.

Authorities said the blast occurred in the province’s southern parts in a border area between the Arghastan and Marouf districts on Tuesday morning.

The explosive device detonated when the vehicle, the victims were traveling in, ran over the landmine.

No group has yet claimed responsibility for the blast, although most terrorist acts across Afghanistan are either claimed by or attributed to the Taliban militants.
