At least 13 people, including children and women, were injured when a rocket shell landed near a house where a wedding party was taking place in the eastern province of Kunar on Friday, police said.

The incident took place in the Watapur district early Friday when guests were gathered at a house to attend a wedding ceremony, police chief, Gen. Khalilullah Ziayee, told Pajhwok Afghan News. The injured included eight children, including girls, two women and four adults, he said. Six of the injured were said to be in a critical condition, the police official said.

Most of the injured were family members of the groom. Four of them were discharged after receiving a first medical aid at a nearby hospital.

Ziayee blamed the Taliban for firing the rocket from Sangar area. The incident came a week after two children playing cricket were killed and four others were wounded when a rocket landed near them in the same district.
