KABUL, Afghanistan — An Afghan official says two roadside bombings have killed at least eight civilians, including women and children, in the country's east.

Hazrat Hussain Mashreqiwal, spokesman for the police chief in Nangarhar province, said at least six civilians, including two women and two children, were killed when their vehicle was struck by a roadside bomb that wounded another two civilians. He says two students were killed in a separate bombing that wounded a third civilian. No group has claimed responsibility for the attacks.

Taliban insurgents frequently target the army and police with roadside bombs, which have also taken a heavy toll on civilians.
