LASHKARGAH (Pajhwok): Seventeen people, including womeninfo-icon and children, have been killed in a traffic accident in southern Helmand province, an official said on Monday.

The mishap occurred on the Kabulinfo-icon-Kandahar highway in the Mirza area of Greshk district on Sunday night, the governor’s spokesman told Pajhwok Afghan News.
