Roadside bomb kills 15 civilians in northern Afghanistan

At least 15 Afghan civilians, including six women and eight children, were killed when their vehicle hit a roadside bomb in Afghanistan's northern Kunduz province.

Mahbubullah Sayedi, district chief of Imam Sahib, which was the scene of heavy fighting between government forces and Taliban fighters in recent months, said the incident occurred on a main road.

"The families were on their way to a wedding ceremony when, unfortunately, their vehicle hit a roadside bomb that killed them," Sayedi said.

The provincial governor, Abdul Jabar Naeemi, said the area where the incident happened is controlled by the Taliban, whom he blamed for the tragedy.
