The Taliban claim the military fired mortars into the market while the military says a auto bomb and mortar shells fired by the insurgents targeted the civilians.

At least 23 civilians were killed and dozens injured after rockets hit a cattle market in Afghanistan's southern Helmand province, the Afghan government and Taliban officials said.

The warring sides blamed each other for Monday's attack on the open-air weekly cattle market in Sangin district where hundreds of villagers from neighbouring districts had gathered to trade sheep and goats.

Texas reported more than 17,000 confirmed new cases over the past three days, with a record high of almost 6,000 on Thursday. Since restrictions to stem spread of the virus were gradually lifted from mid-April, cases have increased again.

The army says there was no military activity in the area on Monday and that two Taliban fighters were also killed when the auto bomb detonated at the marketplace.

The UN recently asked both sides in the conflict to be more careful about avoiding civilian casualties, which it said was on the increase.
