Mine kills 10 in wedding party

August 03, 2008|From Times Wire Reports

A bus carrying a wedding party struck a mine in Afghanistan's southern Kandahar province, killing the bride and groom and eight others, a police official said.

Provincial police chief Matiullah Khan said children were killed in the explosion, which he blamed on Taliban militants. Eight people were wounded, he said.

An AP Television News cameraman later interviewed relatives who said the groom was wounded. It was not immediately possible to reconcile the differing accounts.
