AFGHANISTAN/At least eight civilians belonging to a single family were killed following an improvised explosive device (IED) explosion in western Herat province of Afghanistan.

According to local government officials, the incident took place in Shindand district where heavy clashes have been reported between Afghan security forces and anti-government armed militant groups.

A local security official said the vehicle of the civilians struck with an improvised explosive (IED) on Shindand highway.

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

Local officials blame the Taliban group for the incident as Taliban fighters frequently use improvised explosive device (IED) as the weapon of their choice to target Afghan and coalition security forces which normally leads to civilian casualties.
