At least two civilians were killed, following a roadside mine blast in Afghanistan's southern Kandahar province on Sunday, an official said.

The blast happened at about 1:30 p.m. local time in Dand district's Kalantar area of the troubled province, where the mine, planted by armed militants, struck a tractor of locals, leaving two civilians dead on the spot, Jamal Nasir Barekzai, the provincial police spokesman told Xinhua.

Barekzai blamed Taliban militants for planting the mine to terrorize people.

Taliban militants, fighting government forces and largely relying on suicide and roadside bombings, have yet to claim responsibility.
