world Updated: Mar 07, 2011 16:58 IST

A Taliban-style roadside bomb tore through a car in eastern Afghanistan's Paktika province on Sunday, killing 12 civilians and wounding five others, the provincial administration said.

The dead included five children, two women and five men. They were on their way from neighboring Pakistan, the Paktika provincial administration said in a statement.

Mohibullah Samim the provincial governor blamed the bombing on "enemies of peace who once again revealed their tyrant face to the public," the statement added.
