A roadside bombing in central Afghanistan on Friday killed 10 civilians, including four women and a child, an Afghan official said.

The explosion, which took place in the district of Jaghato in Ghazni province, also wounded six civilians, according to Marwa Amini, spokeswoman for the Interior Ministry.

The civilians were in a minivan, travelling from the Day Kundi province to the city of Ghazni, the Ghazni provincial capital, when their vehicle was targeted.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility but Amini blamed the Taliban, who control much of the region.
