Blast kills two civilians in Afghanistan's Kunar province

Kabul, Aug 4 (UNI) At least two civilians were killed and three others wounded in a roadside bomb blast in Afghanistan's northeastern Kunar province, the spokesman for the provincial governor, Abdul Ghani Musamim, said on Tuesday.
The explosion took place in the province's district of Shigal earlier in the day, TOLO news reported.
Although the United States and the Taliban struck their long-awaited peace deal in late February, violence in Afghanistan has continued unabated. Direct intra-Afghan talks were initially scheduled to commence in March but have been pushed back due to the continuing disagreements over the mutual release of prisoners.
