Roadside bomb kills family of 5: Afghan

(AP) / 3 February 2013

An Afghan government official says a roadside bomb has killed a family of five in the south of the country.

The administrator for Miyanishin district in Helmand province, Shah Mahmood Shafa, says the family was driving through the district in a Toyota Corolla Saturday night when their car struck a bomb. He did not say if the explosion had targeted them, or how the bomb was detonated.

Shafa says two of the dead were young children.

Insurgent roadside bombs and landmines are considered among the most dangerous weapons in Afghanistan for civilians.
