Dozens of passengers, mostly women and children, were killed in western Afghanistan on Wednesday when the bus they were travelling in hit a roadside bomb, officials said.

“A passenger bus travelling on the Kandahar-Herat highway hit a Taliban roadside bomb. So far at least 28 killed, 10 wounded,” said Muhibullah Muhib, the spokesman for Farah province.

Farooq Barakzai, a spokesman for Farah’s governor, confirmed the toll but warned it may rise higher.
