At least 14 people were killed Thursday in Afghanistan when a bomb exploded at a cemetery in Ghani Khil district of eastern Nangarhar province.

Seven women and seven children from a family visiting the graves of their relatives were killed, said Ahmad Zia Abdulzai, a spokesman for the governor of eastern Nangarhar province. Four others including three women and a child were injured he added.

Abdulzai said that their investigation was still going on, but for now they thought that it was the result of a personal grudge, not insurgents' action, he said.
