Roadside Bomb Kills Three UNHCR Afghan Employees

MAZAR-I-SHARIF, Afghanistan (Reuters) -- A roadside bomb killed three Afghan employees of the United Nations refugee agency (UNHCR) on June 23 in Afghanistan's northern Jowzjan Province, the provincial governor said.

Hashim Zari blamed the Taliban for the blast, part of a rise in militant attacks in recent months in several parts of northern Afghanistan, regarded as relatively secure until recently compared to the south and east where the Islamists are most active.
