KABUL, Afghanistan, Oct. 27 (UPI) -- At least 20 people were killed Sunday by a roadside bomb as they were on their way to a wedding in eastern Afghanistan, an official says.

The wedding guests were traveling in a minibus in the Andar district of Ghazni province when the blast occurred, said Nabi Jan, a spokesman for the provincial government.
