At least 23 civilians were killed on Monday in Afghanistan’s southern Helmand province and dozens were injured when rockets fell on a cattle market, said Afghan government and Taliban officials, Reuters reported.

The warring sides blamed each other for the attack on the open-air weekly cattle market in Sangin district where hundreds of villagers from neighbouring districts had gathered to trade sheep and goats.

A spokesman for Helmand’s governor said the several rockets fired by Taliban insurgents landed close to the cattle market, killing 23 civilians, including children.
