Nato convoy targeted in Afghanistan

At least two children are injured as car bomb explodes in southern city of Kandahar.


    Nato's International Security Assistance Force could not immediately confirm the blast.

      

    Foreign soldiers and their Afghan counterparts sealed off the area, the reporter said.

      

    The explosion was near a Nato-run military outpost that used to be the home of Taliban leader Mullah Mohammad Omar, whose movement is blamed for a wave of attacks in Afghanistan.

     

    Also on Tuesday, at least nine policemen were killed in a battle with Taliban-linked fighter and bomb attacks in the southern Afghanistan province of Kandahar, a police commander said.

     

    Five policemen were killed in an gunfight with Taliban-linked fighters who attacked their remote outpost in Shorabad, a district on the Afghan-Pakistani border, Sayed Agha Saqeb said.

     

    Four other officers, who were despatched to the scene of the fighting as reinforcements, were killed when their vehicles were blown up by remote-controlled bombs, he said.
