A roadside bomb has exploded under a civilian minibus in Southern Afghanistan, killing all 19 people on board.

The bus was on its way to the regional capital Lashkar Gah from the district of Nahr-e-Saraj when the device went off.

The Taliban habitually used roadside devices against Western forces.

The first six months of this year were the deadliest for civilians in Afghanistan since the conflict began in 2001.
