KABUL: Officials say two separate blasts in southern Afghanistan on Tuesday killed 14 people, including a group of insurgents who were trying to rig an improvised bomb against Afghan and foreign forces.

Provincial spokesman Daud Ahmadi told AFP that in the volatile Nawzad district of Helmand province a group of seven Taliban terrorists died while trying fit as pipe bomb on a vehicle on Monday.

"The explosive-packed pipe detonated killing a Taliban commander along with six of his fighters," he said. On the same day, seven people, including six women, were killed in an explosion in Nawa district of the same province inside a house used by a local Taliban commander Mullah Manan, a senior security official said.
