A roadside bomb in Afghanistan has killed at least 12 members of the same family, including women and children, in southern Helmand province.
Police said the blast struck the family's van in the Marjah district, a Taliban stronghold.
Several people were injured and the death toll could rise.
A relative told AP news agency The family had been fleeing the area after hearing a government offensive against the Taliban was imminent.
The attack is yet to be claimed by any group but the Taliban routinely plant roadside bombs in the area to target Afghan security forces.
Violence has increased across the country since the departure of most US and Nato forces last year.
