Nine Afghan Girls Killed by Taliban Mine


Nine young girls were killed in Nangarhar, Aghanistan, while searching for fire wood, on Monday.

During their search they managed to set off a buried explosive device.

Two other girls were taken to the hospital, with serious injuries.

The girls ranged from nine years old, up to thirteen.

Security forces later found two more unexploded devices nearby.

They believe that the Taliban had temporarily placed them there, to be moved to a target, at a later time.
