Sep 20, 2012 - 20:21

KANDAHAR CITY (PANinfo-icon): A child and a policeman were killed when a bomb-rigged motorbike went off in the southern city of Kandahar late on Thursday, an official said.

The explosives-packed bike had been parked on a road in the Brekhnakot area in the jurisdiction of the first police district, the governor’s spokesman said.

Javed Faisal said another two children and a policeman were injured when the bike was detonated with a remote-controlled device around 7pm.

Witness Mohammad Salim, who runs a shop in the area, said the blast occurred when the crowd in the bazaar started swelling. He confirmed a child and a policeman were killed.
