Three civilians were killed in a landmine blast in Afghanistan's eastern Paktia province where surging violence has recently displaced hundreds of families.
Axar.az reports citing Turkish media that the provincial governor's spokesman, Abdul Rahman Mangal, told Anadolu Agency that a passenger car hit a roadside landmine in the Ibrahim Khel area of the provincial capital Gardez, killing three civilians.
Blaming the Taliban for planting roadside landmines, he said the victims of the incident were local carpet sellers.
A week ago, four members of two families, two of them women, were killed in a similar blast in the same area.
There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the deadly explosion.
