KANDAHAR CITY (Pajhwok): A car bomb targeting a police post in the Panjwai district of southern Kandahar province has been destroyed before reaching its target, an official said on Wednesday.

Kandahar police spokesman Jamal Nasir Barakzai told Pajhwok Afghan News insurgents attacked the police post in the Salawat area of the district on Tuesday night.

He said the militants simultaneously planned to detonate an explosives-laden Humvee at the security post but police fired at and destroyed the car bomb.

Separately, two militants wanted to plant a roadside bomb in the Eidgah area of Kandahar City on Tuesday night.

Barakzai said one of the rebels was killed in a clash with police and the other detained in wounded condition with a landmine.

The Taliban have not yet commented on any of the incidents.
