Bomb kills four civilians in Spin Boldak

08 March, 2012

KANDAHAR: Four civilians were killed and 10 injured on Wednesday when a remote-controlled motorbike bomb exploded in an Afghan town on the border with Pakistan, police said.

Officials blamed the attack, in the town of Spin Boldak in Kandahar province, on the Taliban, who are waging a 10-year insurgency against the Western-backed government in Kabul.

"There was a motorbike bomb blast against border police in Spin Boldak. Four civilians, one of them a woman, were killed and 10 others were injured," said Janan, a rapid-reaction police unit commander who uses only one name.

The Afghan Interior Ministry confirmed the deaths and blamed the blast on the "enemies of Afghanistan" - a reference to the Taliban. Improvised bombs and suicide attacks are the most common weapons used in Taliban attacks.

End.
