Roadside Bomb Hits Coach Bus, Kills 11

The Taliban claims to be behind a roadside bomb that hit a coach bus and killed 11 civilians in Afghanistan Sunday, Yahoo News said.
The attack occurred in the Nazwad District of Afghanistan's southern province of Helmand, the provincial administration said.
On Feb 13, thousands of US, NATO, and Afghan troops began a major offensive against the Taliban, called Mushtarak, in Helmand, Yahoo News said. BBC News said that the bomb exploded to the north of where the major offensive is taking place. The Taliban has responded to increased pressure from Afghan and foreign forces with increased bombings and suicide attacks, including a bomb placed on a bicycle that exploded on Tuesday, killing 7 civilians.
Yahoo News reported that there are about 121,000 troops stationed in Afghanistan to fight the Taliban.
