    The attack occurred in Shirin Tagab while people were playing buzkashi, a traditional team sport played on horseback. Hundreds of locals arrived to watch the game, Governor Abdul Haq Shafiq said.

    On Saturday morning, nine people, including four children, were killed when their minibus hit a roadside bomb in east Afghanistan's Khost province.
