Bomb kills three Afghan civilians

23 November, 2011

JALALABAD: Three civilians were killed and three others, including a woman and child wounded when their vehicle hit a roadside bomb in eastern Afghanistan on Tuesday, police said.

The bomb was planted under a bridge in Alingar district of Laghman province before it ripped through a civilian van, provincial police chief Abdul Rahman Sarjang told AFP.

"The van was hit by a roadside bomb on a bridge in Alingar, killing three men and wounding three other people, including a woman and a child," he said.

Roadside bombs are, frequently, planted by insurgents but there was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack. According to the United Nations, the number of civilians killed in violence in Afghanistan rose by 15 percent in the first six months of this year to 1,462.

End.
