Taliban Suicide Bomber Kills 7 in Helmand

A Taliban suicide bomber killed at least seven people and wounded 42 others in southern Afghanistan on Wednesday, an official said, in an attack targeting police. “A suicide bomber detonated an explosive-filled car in a car park near the main police headquarters in Lashkar Gah,” according to Omar Zhwak, a spokesman for the governor of Helmand Province, Al Jazeera reported. In addition to four soldiers, a girl and two women were among those killed, Zwak said, expressing fears that the death toll could rise further. Children were studying at a nearby mosque when the explosion took place, Zhwak said, adding they were injured in the violence. Authorities said that a group of police officers who had lined up to collect their pay were the target.
