KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — The Afghan government says a bomb has exploded in an open-air market in eastern Afghanistan, killing two small children.

The governor's office for Khost province says in a statement that the bomb was hidden under a stall in the main bazaar in Sabari district. It went off Wednesday while a group of police officers were passing by. The statement says no police officers were affected, though another four civilians were wounded in the blast.
