Three civilians were injured as a bomb went off in Kandahar, the birthplace of Taliban in south Afghanistan Thursday, a police officer said.

"In the incident which occurred at 01:30 p.m. local time three civilian passersby were injured," Mohammad Anwar told Xinhua.

He blamed Taliban militants for carrying out the blast, saying militants by organizing subversive activities want to sabotage peace in the province.

Taliban outfit has yet to make comment.
