 A blast in the southern Afghan city of Kandahar killed at least 32, officials said, as fighting across the country showed no sign of easing off during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan. The casualties add to the hundreds of people who have been killed or wounded in bomb attacks since the beginning of the year. Many have been in the capital, Kabul, but provincial cities have also been hit as the Taliban, seeking to reimpose hardline Islamic rule, have stepped up fighting across the country. Kandahar province, on the border with Pakistan, is a major center of opium cultivation and a stronghold of the Taliban but the city has recently been relatively secure. Tuesday’s explosion came as the Taliban pushed ahead with their spring offensive, launched last month, with fighting in several areas of the country.
