(MENAFN- Khaama Press) At least one person was killed after a mine from a past war exploded in Afghanistan's eastern Ghazni province, officials said on Thursday.
An explosive device left over from previous conflicts exploded on Wednesday afternoon as a farmer was working in his farmland in Asghar Khil village of Moqar district, killing on the spot, the provincial official said.
In a similar incident in Wardak province of Afghanistan, three children were killed and another injured on Monday.
The children were killed and injured in two separate incidents in Wardak province. The first incident occurred on Sunday afternoon in Sayed Abad when three kids discovered an explosive device that resembled a toy.
