A top government official was killed in a roadside mine explosion in western Ghor province of Afghanistan, the local officials said Saturday.

The incident has taken place in the vicinity of Charsada district, leaving the district administrative chief Mirza Mohammad Ibrahim dead.

Provincial governor’s spokesman Abdul Hai Khatebi confirmed the incident and said the district chief of Charsada was killed in a roadside mine explosion.

No individual or group including the Taliban militants has so far claimed responsibility behind the incident.

This comes as at least three civilians were killed in a roadside mine explosion in southern Zabul province of Afghanistan, targeting a civilian vehicle on Kandahar-Zabul highway.

Earlier, at least three children were killed and at least seven others were wounded in back to back roadside bomb explosions in Ghazni province.

The anti-government armed militant groups including Taliban militants have not commented regarding the incidents so far.

The anti-government armed militant groups frequently use explosives materials for the roadside bombings and car bombings to target the government staff and security personnel.
