One mini-bus carrying locals from villages to the Greshk district, capital of south Afghanistan's Helmand province, hit roadside mines early Sunday morning, leaving three children dead and four others wounded, an official said.

Mohammad Hussein Andiwal, the provincial police chief told Xinhua that the mini-bus loaded with civilians was struck by roadside mines planted by "the enemy of Afghanistan" en route to a main bazaar of Greshk district.

"Two adults and two more children under 10 years-old were injured," he added.

In another incident happened in the same district Saturday night, police engaged with Taliban insurgents who attempted an assault on the district checkpoints.

"Three Taliban rebels were killed and two others were injured in exchanging fire," Andiwal said. "There was no casualties on police."
