A suicide car bombing killed five people and wounded two dozen others near a police headquarters in southern Afghanistan, officials said. Mohammad Rasoul, a spokesman for the Afghan army, said three police were killed and three others wounded in the blast in Lashkar Gah, capital of troubled Helmand province, on Tuesday. Enayatullah Ghafari, public health director in the province, told AFP that two dead civilians were also brought to local hospitals. "I'm sure there are more dead," Ghafari added. Some 25 other people, both police and civilians, were also wounded, he said. Lashkar Gah was one of seven areas handed over to Afghan government control by NATO forces in July in a first wave of transition which will see all foreign combat forces leave by the end of 2014.
