Landmines kill five including three women, child

The injured child and the civilian have been taken to hospital, but he had no information about their health status

By Ajmal Wisal

Three women were among five civilians killed during two separate but near simultaneous roadside bombings in the Charchino district of central Uruzgan province on Sunday, officials said.

The three women and one child were killed and another child wounded when a landmine ripped through their vehicle in the Sarab area, moments after another similar blast killed one civilian and wounded another on a motorcycle in the same area, the district police chief, Walidad, told Pajhwok Afghan News.

The injured child and the civilian have been taken to hospital, but he had no information about their health status.

The attacks drew strong condemnation from President Hamid Karzai, who called them “cowardly acts” on the part of the country’s enemies.
