Six children sustained injuries as a mine went off in eastern Kunar province 185 km east of capital Kabul on Monday, provincial police chief Khalilullah Ziae said Tuesday.

"The tragic incident happened in Narang district on Monday when the innocent children were playing as a result six children were injured," Ziae told Xinhua.

However, he added that the condition of the injured children is stable.

The mine, he added, had left over from the past decades of war.

Afghanistan with experiencing over three decades of war and civil strife is the most mine contaminated country in the world.
