The complex, called Aino Mina, houses more than a half million people in the outskirts of Kandahar.

No one has claimed responsibility for the attack, but Kandahar media blames Taliban.

This is the latest in a series of blasts that have killed Afghan civilians. Earlier this month, at least 10 civilians were killed when a roadside bomb in Kandahar detonated, according to BBC News. Fifteen people, including two American soldiers, died Thursday after a suicide attack in the capital city of Kabul.
