The UN Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA) condemns yesterday’s killing of 12 civilians, including eight children returning home from school for the weekend, caused when the vehicle in which they were travelling detonated a pressure-plate improvised explosive device (PPIED) placed on a main public road in Paktika province.

“Children are once again the main victims of these indiscriminate and illegal weapons,” said Pernille Kardel, the Secretary-General’s Deputy Special Representative for Afghanistan.  “There is a simple message to the perpetrators: stop using these weapons if you are serious about safeguarding Afghanistan’s civilians and the country’s future generation.”
