At least 14 Civilians, including women and children, were killed when the bus carrying them hit a roadside bomb in the Kijran district of Daikundi province.

The bus carrying the civilians was targeted in Dasht-e-Sulaiman village, the Ministry of Interior told the press.

Reports indicate that among the dead are 7 women, 5 children, and two men.

The ministry blames the Taliban terrorist group has planted the bomb, which caused the death of civilians.

This comes as the UN had reported in April that around 1,293 casualties were recorded during the first three months of the year.

Only by the first quarter of 2020, 500 civilians including more than 150 children were victims of the war.

According to the report, number of civilian casualties attributed to the anti-government group, particularly the Taliban, had increased by 22 percent.

Taliban have not yet commented on the incident.
