The civilians died in the northern province of Faryab when their mini-van struck a home-made bomb of the kind widely used by Taliban militants in attacks aimed at military forces.

"Eight civilians, including a woman and child, were killed and six others wounded," provincial police chief, Abdul Khaliq Aqsai told AFP, adding that a police convoy had been passing as the bomb exploded.
