Official: A roadside bombing has killed at least six Afghan civilians in the past

On Saturday, at least six civilians, including women and children, were killed when a roadside bomb exploded in eastern Afghanistan, a regional official said.

Ghazni provincial governor's spokesman Wahidullah Janjada said eight other civilians were injured in the afternoon attack in Jagat district.

No one immediately claimed responsibility for the attack, but Jamzada blamed Taliban insurgents active in the province.

Last Wednesday, in a Taliban insurgency attack, a roadside bomb exploded in the same province and killed a district police chief and two of his bodyguards in Daya district.

Habibullah, who is liked by many Afghans, uses the same name and checks outposts early in the morning when an attack occurs.

Afghan forces repulsed Taliban attacks on army posts in the Azra district of eastern Logar province on Friday, the defense ministry said. At least eight Taliban fighters were killed and four others were wounded.

The Taliban and the Afghan national force have recently blamed an increase in attacks across the country - both for efforts and for initiating direct peace talks between the Afghan government and the Taliban.

He accused the Taliban of targeting government forces in their homes, along with their families, who had to endure the intensity of the operation. Meanwhile, Kabul has accused the Taliban of carrying out attacks on civilians and security forces.
