Roadside bombs kill district police chief, 2 civilians in S. Afghanistan
One district police chief was killed Sunday afternoon when a police team were working to defuse the roadside bomb in southern Afghan province of Kandahar and another roadside bombing claimed two civilians in the neighboring Helmand province, officials said, according to Xinhua.
Haji Agha Lalai, a member of provincial council in Kandahar, told Xinhua that Mohammad Naheem Khan, police chief of Panjwayi, was leading a team to remove the roadside bomb when it blew off unexpectedly killing him on the spot and injuring another policeman.
In another incident, an roadside bomb, planted in a handcart, was detonated by remote-control when one police vehicle was passing through a local market in the center of Gereshk district in the dusk time of Sunday, said Daud Ahmadi, the spokesman for provincial administration.
"Two people were killed by the blast and six more were wounded, all civilians," Ahmadi said, adding "no casualty on police was reported."
No group or individuals have not to claim responsibility for the two attacks above while Taliban militants have vowed to intensify assaults against interests of government and international troops, mostly in the shapes of roadside and suicide bombings.
