LASHKARGAH (Pajhwok): A policeman and two civilians were killed on Thursday when a suicide bomber ploughed his explosives-laden vehicle into a police check-post in the capital of southern Helmand province, an official said.

Several people suffered casualties in the car bombing that took place in the Do Lari area of Lashkargah at around 3:30pm, the provincial police spokesman said.  Col. Farid Ahmad Obaid said he had no exact figures for casualties.

But Helmand police chief Brig. Gen. Nabi Jan Mullakhel told Pajhwok Afghan News one policeman and two civilians were killed and one policeman and three civilians were wounded in the attack.

An eyewitness confirmed Mullakhel’s account. An official at the Emergency-run hospital said they had been delivered one dead body and five injured people at the hospital.
