KABUL, Afghanistan — A roadside bomb destroyed a crowded minibus Thursday in western Afghanistan, killing 14 passengers who were all members of an extended family, a provincial official said.
Rafi Behrozan, the spokesman for the Herat governor, said four others were wounded in the powerful blast in the Kushk Kuhna district of Herat province.
Two additional bombs found nearby on the same road were defused by Afghan policemen, he added.
"The explosion was very strong and the vehicle was destroyed. The majority of these aboard were killed," Behrozan said.
