At least 13 civilians were wounded in a mortar attack in eastern Nangarhar province of Afghanistan, local officials said Thursday.

The incident took place late on Wednesday evening in the restive Bati Kot district with the local officials blaming the militant groups for the incident.

The provincial police commandment said at least 5 children and 2 women were among those wounded.

This comes as the United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA) said late in October that the mission has documented 8,397 war-related civilian casualties (2,562 deaths and 5,835 injured) between 1 January and 30 September,  representing a one per cent decrease compared to the same period in 2015.
