A roadside bomb explosion hit a bus in the western Afghan province of Farah on July 31, killing at least 35 civilians and wounding dozens of others, officials say. No militant group immediately claimed responsibility for the blast. The bloodshed comes amid a months-long, U.S.-led push to forge a deal with Taliban militants to end the nearly 18-year war in Afghanistan as the country gears up for presidential elections set for September 28.
