He also said that the attackers were riding motorbikes and made their good escape.
Three trucks were also set on fire by the attackers.
All the trucks were hired and served for NATO-led troops based in Kandahar, Asmatullah further said.
Meantime, police chief of Kandahar province Sardar Mohammad Zazai confirmed the incident and said details would be provided after completion of investigation.
