Taliban bombs kill Afghan family, cops

Taliban roadside bombs killed five civilians, including a family of four, and two police officers in the country's troubled south at the weekend, officials said Sunday.
The family -- mother, father and two daughters aged eight and nine -- died along with their driver in Helmand province's Khanishin district when their vehicle hit an improvised bomb late Saturday.
"The blast was so powerful that nothing was left of the bodies, they are shattered in small pieces," district governor Shah Mahmoud said, blaming Taliban insurgents for the attack.
