A total of 11 people including four civilians lost their lives as an explosive device of Taliban militants went off prematurely in the eastern Kunar province Saturday night, provincial police chief Juma Gul Hemat said Sunday.

"A group of Taliban rebels were planting a mine on a road in Dangam district Saturday night to target security forces' convoy, but the device exploded prematurely killing 11 people including seven militants and four civilian passersby on the spot," Hemat told reporters here.

Taliban militants who are largely relying on roadside and suicide bombings are yet to make comments.

Kunar with Assadabad as its capital 185 km east of Kabul has been the scene of Taliban-led insurgency over the past one decade. Endit
