Attacks across Afghanistan kill at least 20

KABUL — At least 20 people were killed in four insurgent attacks around Afghanistan on Thursday, according to police and government officials.

The worst attack was a roadside bomb that blew up as a pickup truck crammed with civilians passed by, killing 10 people, five of them women and one a child, said Abdul Zirak, the spokesman for the governor of Helmand Province in southern Afghanistan. Six other civilians were wounded.
