At least 11 civilians were killed and 12 others were wounded in an explosion in northern Faryab province of Afghanistan, local officials said Friday.

The officials further added that the incident took place after the vehicle of civilians struck an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) planted by militants on a roadside.

Provincial governor’s spokesman Jawid Didar confirmed the incident and said at least 11 civilians were killed and 12 others including the bride were wounded.

He said several women and children were among those wounded and the incident took place as the civilians were on their way to a wedding ceremony.

No group inlcuding the Taliban insurgents has so far claimed responsibility behind the incident.

Local officials blame the Taliban group for such incidents as the Taliban fighters frequently use Improvised Explosive Device (IED) as the weapon of their choice to target the security forces and government officials.

However, in majority of such incidents the ordinary civilians are targeted besides incurring casualties to the security forces.
