The explosion happened on Monday

Nine children have been killed and four others are injured following an explosion in eastern Afghanistan.

The office of a Taliban-appointed governor says the blast went off yesterday, when a cart selling food struck an old unexploded mortar shell.

The injured children were taken to a local regional hospital in the area.

Afghanistan is a country with one of the most unexploded land mines, from the country's decades of conflict.

Previously many children have been victims of unexploded land mines in the country.
