KABUL: A bomb blew up a bus in eastern Afghanistan on Wednesday and killed seven passengers, the interior ministry said, blaming the attack on insurgents.
"There was an IED (improvised explosive device) planted by the enemies of the people of Afghanistan that hit the vehicle," ministry spokesman Zemarai Bashary told foreign news agency.
"As a result seven civilians, including a woman, were killed and nine other civilians wounded" in the attack in Khost, he said.
