Roadside mine kills civilians in western Afghanistan

Seventeen civilians were killed when a minibus carrying guests to a wedding party in western Afghanistan struck a roadside mine Friday, a provincial Afghan official said.

In a separate incident in eastern Afghanistan, two International Security Assistance Force members were killed in an "improvised explosive attack," according to a statement released by the ISAF.

    They shouldn't delete it. It is a good list.

    I do wish things would get better in Afghanistan. Hopefully our troops really will be pulled out in 2014.

    Good morning Jeff. I was Obama Mama during the election process, but since the Sandy tragedy I have changed my name back to Scottish Mama. I thought it disrespectful to be an advocate for an election when people were going thru such a disaster. Have a good day Jeff.
