Sources in Ghor province say that two separate explosions killed three civilians, including a woman, in the province.

“Two men and a woman were killed when two roadside bombs exploded in the district”, said Mohammad Musa Kalim, the governor of Ghor district.

Kaleem said that the first explosion took place yesterday evening in the direction of the Dawlatyar Awlad Khairullah area of the district, in which a vehicle collided with an IED, killing the driver.

According to him, the second explosion occurred this morning when a man and a woman wanted to attend the funeral of the killed driver, who was close to them, but were hit by another roadside bomb and were immediately killed.

The governor of Ghor said the roadside bombings are the works of the Taliban and that they could not confront the security forces, but are trying to target security forces and civilians by planting roadside bombs.

The Taliban have not yet commented on the incident.
