An Improvised Explosive Device (IED) explosion killed ten civilians including children in South-eastern Khost province of Afghanistan.
Nasrat Rahimi, a spokesman for the Ministry of Interior confirmed that the bomb went off at around 5 am local time in Alisher district of Khost province on Tuesday.
Rahimi further added that the explosion killed civilians including 5 men, 3 children and 2 women.
The Taliban group has not commented regarding the incident so far but Rahimi blamed the group for planting the roadside bomb which killed the civilians.
Taliban militants and other insurgent groups frequently use improvised explosive devices to target the security forces and government personnel.
But the majority of roadside bombings inflict casualties on ordinary civilians.
