Deaths in Afghan suicide blast
Several dead as attacker targets crowded shopping area of town in Kandahar province.
The target of Saturday’s attack appeared to have been policemen aboard two pick-up trucks parked in the street.
There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the incident but Taliban fighters have increased suicide attacks in recent months.
The Taliban have waged an often violent campaign against Afghanistan’s government and Nato forces since they were driven from power in late 2001.
