A roadside blast Friday ripped through a vehicle in southern Afghanistan, killing 14 people as they traveled to a provincial capital for holiday celebrations, an official said. The explosion, which also wounded three people, went off on a road leading to a small village just north of Tirin Kot, the capital of Uruzgan province, said Abdul Qayum Qayumi, the governor's spokesman. It wasn't clear if the explosion was from an old mine left over from past conflicts or a newly planted roadside bomb.
