LASHKARGAH (Pajhwok): Three Public Order Police were killed and eight others wounded in a suicide car bombing in southern Helmand province on Sunday, an official said.

The incident happened at 2:30pm in the Dorahi area of Lashkargah, the provincial capital, said the governor’s spokesman, who stopped short of blaming anyone for the assault.
