Six civilians -- four women and two children -- were killed in a Taliban-style roadside bombing in the southern Afghan province of Uruzgan on Thursday, a police spokesman said.

The bombing in the troubled province's Dihrawud district comes a day after a similar incident killed eight civilians in the neighbouring province of Helmand.

"Six civilians are dead, four of them were women and the two others children," Farid Ail told AFP.
