At least one person was killed when a bomb exploded at a cockfight in northern Afghanistan early yesterday, police said, blaming Taliban insurgents. Dozens of people were at the fight in Kunduz province when the remote-controlled bomb exploded, said provincial police chief Mohammad Razaq Yaqoubi. One person was also wounded. No one has claimed responsibility, but Yaqoubi blamed the Taliban, who banned gambling, music, movies and television, during their six-year rule.
