KANDAHAR CITY (Pajhwok): An officer was among three policemen killed in a roadside bombing in southern Kandahar province, an official said on Wednesday.

The blast took place on the Kandahar-Uruzgan highway in Urdobagh area of Shawali Kot district late on Tuesday, the governor’s spokesman said.

Aziz Ahmad Azizi told Pajhwok Afghan News that Kandahar City’s second security battalion commander Sidiqullah was killed along with two subordinates when their vehicle struck the hidden bomb.

He said another two policemen were wounded in the bombing that followed a clash between the Talibaninfo-icon and the police, but the police suffered no casualties in the clash.

Taliban spokesman Qari Yousuf Ahamdi said the fighters targeted a supply convoy on the road, killing 21 police.

He said several other policemen were wounded and their three vehicles destroyed.

But local officials rejected Ahmadi’s claims.
