KABUL (TIP): An Afghan official says Taliban gunmen killed eight people in an ambush in a province east of the capital, Kabul.
Sarhadi Zwak , a spokesman for the governor of Laghman Province, says the attack took place Thursday afternoon in Mihtarlam, the provincial capital.
The victims, four local police officers and four civilians, were all travelling in the same van when it was attacked, Zwak said. Two of the dead were children, he said.
Zwak blamed the Taliban for the attack, but no one has publicly claimed responsibility yet.
