LASHKARGAH (PANinfo-icon): A man was killed and 10 others were wounded in a bomb attack in the Sangin district of southern Helmand province, an official said on Tuesday.

The blast occurred on Monday evening in the main district bazaar, where an explosives-laden motorcycle was detonated with a remote-controlled device, the district chief said.

Mohammad Sharif Sharif told Pajhwok Afghan News a public order police was killed, while three other policemen, an Afghan National Army soldier and five civilians were wounded in the blast.

Without claiming responsibility for the incident, Talibaninfo-icon spokesman Qari Yousuf Ahmadi said Afghan and foreign troops had suffered casualties in two blasts in the district.
