KABUL — Authorities say a roadside bomb has killed six civilians and wounded more than a dozen others in southern Afghanistan.

Omar Zwak, a spokesman for the governor of Helmand province, says the explosion Sunday evening hit a taxi. He says the bomb killed six civilians and wounded 13.

Bombs in vehicles, along roadsides and carried by suicide bombers are the Taliban's weapons of choice and the leading cause of civilian casualties in Afghanistan.

Earlier Sunday, a suicide bomber attacked a military bus in Kabul, killing at least four people — including two soldiers.

The Taliban claimed responsibility for the Kabul attack.
