The attacker drove his explosives-laden car into the checkpoint at the district police headquarters of Arghistan district, provincial governor spokesman Jawed Faisal told.

 

“Five policemen were martyred and six others injured in this cowardly attack,” Faisal said.

 

Militants frequently target Afghan police and military, who are due to assume responsibility for the country’s security from NATO’s International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) by the end of 2014.

 

Kandahar is the largest city in southern Afghanistan and the birthplace of the Taliban, who have been waging a bloody insurgency since being ousted from power by the US-led invasion in late 2001 that followed the 9/11 attacks. (AFP)
