Afghanistan suicide car bomb kills 14 in Helmand province

Baku, October 10, AZERTAC

At least 14 people have been killed after a car bomb exploded in Afghanistan's Helmand province, police have said, according to Independent.

The suicide attack happened on Monday in the city of Lashkar Gah, police official Haji Marjan said.

The explosion happened at around 11:30 am in the Mukhtar area of Lashkar Gah's police district 2, killing four civilians and 10 police officers, including Marjan's brother, he said.

The death toll from the attack is expected to rise as it remains unclear how many people have been accounted following the explosion.

The attack comes as Taliban militants entered the city earlier on Monday, launching a large-scale attack on the province's capital while targeting security checkpoints.
