Gunmen have killed 13 passengers travelling on a bus towards southern Afghanistan.

The killings took place in Wardak province, which lies just to the west of the capital Kabul. 

The spokesman for the provincial governor, Ata'ullah Khogyani, said a group of gunmen opened fire on a bus in Wardak around 1:00 am Tuesday. One of the victims was a woman. The bus was heading for the restive southern city of Kandahar, once a bastion of the Taliban.  

The deputy governor of neighboring Ghazni province, Mohammed Ali, said the gunmen picked their victims and shot them one by one. Both officials said the motive for the attack was still under investigation.
