Blast Kills Eight Afghan Children

Eight Afghan children were killed today while playing with an unexploded rocket in a village in northern Kunduz Province.

Ali Abad district chief Habibullah Mohtashim said seven died on the spot and the eighth while he was being taken for treatment.

Mohtashim said the rocket may have been fired into the village by Taliban insurgents on September 18, as part of their effort to disrupt the parliamentary elections.
