At least four civilians were reportedly killed on Tuesday morning when a rocket landed in a Bazar in Faryab province of Afghanistan, a report in TOLO News quoted officials as saying.

According to the officials 42 other civilians were wounded in the attack.

Khwaja Sabz Posh district governor Abdullah Masoumi said the rocket was fired by the Taliban and instead of hitting the district council building it hit the Bazar.

According to Masoumi Tuesday is Bazar day and dozens of people from surrounding villages had been there to do their shopping.

So far no group including the Taliban has claimed responsibility for the attack.
