Roadside bomb kills 10 in Afghanistan

An Afghan official says a roadside bomb has killed 10 people in the main city in southern Afghanistan.

 

Kandahar province spokesman Javid Faisal says policemen were out late Saturday night inspecting a bomb that had been found in a residential neighborhood of Kandahar. They detained three suspects and were driving back with them in a police pickup truck when the vehicle struck a bomb buried in the road. Eight police officers and two detainees were killed in the blast. (AP)
