KANDAHAR, Afghanistan, Dec. 9 (UPI) -- A roadside explosion in southern Afghanistan's Kandahar province killed at least two Afghan civilians and injured at least two others, local authorities said.

The explosion took place in the Ghorak district of southern Kandahar province Saturday evening, Khaama Press reported.
