An official in the volatile south of Afghanistan says the governor of Kandahar province has survived an assassination attempt while he was on his way to a mosque for Eid-ul-Azha prayers. Zelmai Ayubi, a spokesman for Governor Turyalai Wesa, says a remote-controlled roadside bomb detonated as the governor's three-car convoy passed through the center of Kandahar city. Ayubi says one policeman was wounded in the attack.
