“The victims, including a woman two children, were members of a family. The blast which occurred in Zartali locality of Shah Wali Kot district also destroyed their vehicle,” provincial police spokesman, Jamal Barakzai, told Xinhua.

Out of total casualties, 330 women and 565 children were killed in separate incidents in 2020, according to the commission.
