At least 11 people, including six children and a woman, were killed in a roadside bomb blast in the Nangarhar's Achin district, eastern Afghanistan, on Sunday, according to officials. According to reports, a vehicle carrying civilians was struck by an improvised explosive device (IED). «Over 10 of my family members were on their way to our relatives' houses. I was at home. Then I heard that... Еще a roadside bomb had hit them. At least 10 of my family members including my nephew were killed,» said a relative of the victims. «US forces say they are able to see everything on the ground. But why do they not see the people who plant a roadside bomb so close to their military base?» commented local tribal leader Mohammad Amen. The deadly incident occurred on the second day as the parliamentary elections in the country, which were extended after technical issues caused hours of delays at voting stations.
