Kabul, September 16

Militant attacks killed at least seven people across Afghanistan as the country prepares for presidential elections later this month, Afghan officials said Monday.

At least five civilians, including women and children, were killed when their vehicle struck a roadside bomb in western Farah province on Sunday, according to Mohibullah Mohib, spokesman for the provincial police. No one immediately claimed responsibility for the bombing, but the Taliban are active in the province.

Earlier this month, the Taliban launched an attempt to take Farah, briefly seizing an army recruitment center and setting it on fire. Later, airstrikes forced Taliban out of the city. — AP
