KABUL - Three Afghan civilians were killed and two more wounded when their vehicle struck an improvised explosive device in the Waghaz District of Ghazni province yesterday.
In a separate incident yesterday, an Afghan civilian was injured in an IED blast in the Nahr-e Saraj District of Helmand province.
