Rocket attacks and roadside bomb blast on Friday in eastern Afghan province of Khost left at least five civilians dead, officials said on Saturday.

Roadside mines planted by Taliban militants against Afghan troops claimed the lives of two civilians and injured another in Nadir Shahkot district of the eastern Khost province, a military officer Israr Mohammad told Xinhua.

"The mines struck a civilian car Friday night killing two commuters and wounding another," the officer said.

There were no harm and casualties on the troops, he stressed.

In the other incident, over a dozen rockets fired by Taliban insurgents in Khost province claimed the lives of three civilians, police chief of Sabari district Rasoul Mirjan told Xinhua.

"The rebels fired 17 mortars Friday night on Sabari district and one of them hit a residential area killing three persons from one family," Mirjan said.

The victims, he added, include two women and a man.
