Suicide car bomb hits Afghan bank, 10 injured

The bomber detonated the vehicle at the New Kabul Bank in the provincial capital Lashkar Gah, said deputy police chief for Helmand, Kamal-u-Din Sherzai.
Sherzai could not immediately confirm a casualty figure.
Most of those injured were soldiers and police officers collecting their salaries at the bank at the time of the blast.
