An IED (Improvised Explosive Device) has claimed the life of 6 civilians in Afghanistan, after they encountered the roadside device meant to kill Afghanistan and American security forces. Instead, the lives of six innocents, including a mother and her newborn baby, were among the fatal victims of an extremist attempt gone awry (or accordingly, depending on which scumbag extremist you talk to).
BBC reports that over 1,100 civilians have been killed in Afghanistan this year, with 80% of those deaths tied to IED's.
This is just another senseless killing due to extremism in Afghanistan, and the Taliban at this time is neither denying or proclaiming their involvement with the deaths.
