14 civilians die in Afghanistan bombing

Fourteen civilians were killed and four others injured when a minibus struck a roadside bomb while traveling to Herat, Afghanistan, an official said.

Shafiq Behrazian, spokesman for the governor of Herat Province, said the minibus was traveling from Koshk-e-Kohna district to the main part of the city of Herat when it hit a bomb that had been planted on the road.

All the dead belonged to a family heading to an engagement celebration, Behrazian added.
