KUNDUZ CITY (Pajhwok): Four children have been killed and 18 others wounded in northern Kunduz province, local officials said on Tuesday.

A mortar shell exploded in Chahar Dara district, killing four children and wounding seven others, a spokesman for the 808th Spinzar Police Zone said.

Mahfoozullah Akbari told Pajhwok Afghan News the mortar shell went off in the Qasab village of the district late on Monday. “The children were playing with the shell.”

Elsewhere, 11 people were slightly wounded when a hand grenade was hurled at them in the Kabul Bandar area of the provincial capital, the police official said.

The incident was triggered by an exchange of harsh words between two drivers. No one has been arrested so far in connection with the grenade attack.
