Attack On Afghan Cricket Game Kills 9

Kabul:Sept 28; A suicide car bombing killed at least nine people and wounded more than 50 at a cricket match in Afghanistan on Sunday, officials said.

The attack took place in southeastern Paktika province, on the border with Pakistan, the officials said.

Authorities initially said the game being played at the time of the blast was soccer, but an interior ministry statement later said it was a cricket match.

The attack probably targeted members of the local government watching the game, officials said.

The Taliban denied responsibility for the latest attack.
