Kabul (Web Desk): At least 16 people, almost all of them women and young girls, were killed when their vehicle hit a land mine in Kunduz province in northern Afghanistan, a government official said.


“At around 5pm this evening a mine planted by the Taliban terrorists hit a civilian car… killing 15 civilians and wounding two more,” said Nasrat Rahimi, an interior ministry spokesperson.

Six women and a man were also among those killed in the blast in Kunduz, on the country’s northern border with Tajikistan, Rahimi said.

No group has claimed responsibility for the blast. It was also unclear if it was a targeted attack.
