By Bakhtar Safi

Six civilians were killed and three others wounded when a rocket hit a civilian house in the central province of Kapisa, a senior official said on Saturday.

The incident took place in the Haibatkhel area of Tagab district, where the rocket fell inside a house late in the afternoon, Governor Mehrabuddin Sapi told Pajhwok Afghan News.

He ruled out involvement of NATO-led soldiers in the incident, but a provincial council member, Najibullah Rahimi, claimed the rocket was fired from a joint base of Afghan and foreign soldiers.

“The house belonged to a man who just returned from hajj. People had gathered to welcome him. The house owner and two of his family members were killed,” he added.
