Three civilians were killed and three others injured as a roadside bomb struck a civilian car in the northern Jauzjan province on Saturday, spokesman for the provincial government Reza Ghafori said.

"A mine planted by militants on a road in Faizabad district struck a civilian car at around noon killing three innocent persons including a woman and two children and injuring three others including two children and a man," Ghafori told Xinhua.

Pointing finger at the enemies of peace, a reference to the Taliban militants, the official added that the enemies by organizing such attacks want to terrorize the people.

Taliban militants who have been fighting the government in several provinces including parts of Jauzjan are yet to claim responsibility.
