Officials in Afghanistan say at least four people were killed and 11 injured by a roadside-bomb blast in the northern province of Kapisa.

Interior Ministry spokesman Tariq Arian said the May 29 blast targeted a minivan full of university lecturers and students that was traveling to Al-Beroni University in the town of Kohistan.

The blast was reported set off by remote control, and there was no immediate claim of responsibility.

Deadly attacks last year against the university in Kabul were claimed by the Islamic State group.
