Two separate bomb blasts have killed at least seven civilians and wounded several others in Afghanistan as security situation continues to deteriorate in the country.


The Interior Ministry says the first explosion took place when a roadside bomb struck a vehicle in Ghazni Province.

Four people including two children were killed in the blast.

Three other people lost their lives in a separate explosion in the same province.

"It strongly condemns these acts of the enemies of peace and stability and expresses its sincere condolences to the families of the victims," the ministry said in a statement.

According to a UN report, more than 360 civilians were killed across Afghanistan in May alone.

Hundreds of civilians have been killed in US-led operations or Taliban attacks in various parts of Afghanistan over the past few months, with Afghans becoming more outraged over the seemingly endless number of deadly assaults.

The security situation continues to deteriorate in Afghanistan despite the presence of some 150,000 foreign troops in the country.
