Authorities said the family's car exploded either as a result of a roadside device or suicide bomb. Two women and two children were among the dead.

No one has claimed responsibility.

Afghanistan's Defense Ministry on Tuesday reported a similar incident on the country's eastern border with Pakistan. Taliban militants detonated a roadside bomb as an army vehicle drove passed, killing one young girl and injuring two other civilians.
