Newborn baby among six killed in Afghan blast: police

afghanistan 400KHOST: A mother and her newborn baby were among six family members killed in a roadside bombing in eastern Afghanistan overnight, police and witnesses said Sunday.


The victims were heading home from the hospital after the mother had given birth when the bomb planted by Taliban insurgents tore through their vehicle in Khost, police said.


Roadside bombs are the weapon of choice for the Islamist militants who are fighting in an insurgency to bring down the Western-backed government in Kabul.


The deadly improvised explosive devices (IEDs) often miss their military targets and hit civilians who use the same roads.
