LASHKAR GAH, Afghanistan, April 13 (Xinhua) -- A motorbike bomb rocked Sangin town in the southern Helmand province 555 km south of capital Kabul on Friday, injuring 11 people, an official said.

"The terrorists planted explosive in the cavities of a motorcycle and detonated it by remote control in the bazaar of Sangin district at around 08:00 a.m. local time as a result 11 people were injured," spokesman for provincial administration Daud Ahmadi told Xinhua.

There are one police and a child among the injured and the remaining are adult people, all civilians, he further said.

He also blamed the enemies of peace, a term used by Afghan officials against Taliban militants for organizing the attack. However, the armed outfit fighting Afghan government is yet to make comment.
