KORGHAN, Afghanistan, May 5 (UPI) -- A roadside bomb in the western Farah province in Afghanistan killed at least four people and injured five others Sunday, officials said.

The victims were all residents of Korghan village and were on their way to the center of the district when the explosion happened, Zhwandai said.
