At least 14 Afghan civilians, including women and children, have been killed in a roadside bombing in the southern Helmand province.
The bomb struck a minibus travelling on the main road that connects the Sangin district to the major city of Kandahar on Thursday. Several civilians were also wounded.
Ghulam Haidar, who said two of his brothers died in the attack, told the Associated Press news agency that the bus was transporting residents to a nearby market.
"There was a huge blast ... body parts were scattered far away," he said.
Daud Ahmadi, a spokesman for the Helmand provincial government, blamed the Taliban for the attack. The Taliban denied that allegation.
