The passenger bus struck a Taliban roadside bomb in Greshk district of southern Helmand province today morning, said Fawad Aman, the spokesman for the Ministry of Defense.

At least five civilians were killed and nine others were killed, according to the spokesman.

The Taliban, however, blamed government forces for targeting the bus, a claim denied by Defense Ministry’s spokesman.
