Roadside bombs killed 14 civilians traveling in two vehicles in Afghanistan's southern Kandahar province close to the Pakistan border, police said.
"This morning a tractor and small truck hit roadside bombs in Arghistan district, killing 14 people and wounding three," police said.
The deaths come a day after bomb blasts and a rocket attack in southern Afghanistan killed 11 civilians, including at least four children, in a space of 24 hours.
For the past five years the number of civilians killed in the war has risen steadily, reaching a record 3,021 in 2011, the vast majority caused by NATO-led forces, according to Afghan civilians.
Meanwhile a video allegedly shows woman shot dead for adultery in Parwan province;
A man who Afghan officials say is a member of the Taliban shot dead a woman accused of adultery in front of a crowd near Kabul, a video obtained by Reuters showed.
In the three-minute video, a man approaches a woman kneeling in the dirt and shoots her five times at close range with an automatic rifle, and more than 150 men watching in a village in Parwan province.
