Four people were killed on Sunday and 14 others wounded in a bombing in the eastern Afghan city of Khost, officials said.

The attack took place in a market, said local police chief Faizullah Ghairat.

Habib Shah Ansari, the provincial health director in Khost, said a bomb went off in a computer and mobile phone market, killing at least four civilians and wounding 15 others.

Another two civilians were killed in a separate bombing in the eastern Laghman province.

Sarhadi Zwak, a spokesman for the provincial governor, said two others were wounded in that attack.

No one claimed either attack, but the Taliban are active in both provinces.

A plane trying to make an emergency landing at an airport in northeastern Ohio crashed, killing all three people aboard, authorities said.
The Federal Aviation Administration said Saturday that the twin-engine Beechcraft 60 went down near the Youngstown-Warren Regional Airport in Ohio at about 6:45 p.m. Friday.
The Ohio State Highway Patrol post in Trumbull County, which was notified shortly after 7 p.m. Saturday, said the crash just north of the airport killed the pilot and two passengers. The families of the victims have been notified and names are to be released later, an official said.
Anthony Trevena, executive director of the Western Reserve Port Authority, told WKBN-TV that the crash came after an airplane not associated with the air reserve station at the airport came in for an unscheduled emergency landing. A mechanical failure is suspected, the station reported.
The National Transportation Safety Board will investigate, the FAA said in a statement.
