A roadside bomb has killed at least six Afghan civilians and wounded two others in the southern province of Helmand, officials say.
The explosion took place in Washer district on June 28, according to provincial police spokesmanZamanHamdard.
He said those killed and wounded including women and children.
No one immediately claimed responsibility for the attack, but Hamdard blamed the Taliban.
Violence had dropped across much of the country after the Taliban offered a brief cease-fire to mark the Eid al-Fitr festival last month, but officials say the insurgents have stepped up attacks in recent weeks.
