KANDAHAR CITY (Pajhwok): Mortar shells struck the governor’s office in the capital of southern Kandahar province on Wednesday, a credible security source said.

The attack came at around 10:30am, the security source, wishing anonymity, told Pajhwok Afghan News.

At least two mortar shells hit the building while two others landed near former police chief Gen. Abdul Raziq’s tomb. The attack caused no casualties.

The official accused the Taliban of conducting the mortar strike. He said police had reached site and were investigating the incident.

Three days ago two mortar shells struck the Khirqa shrine, resulting in no casualties.

The Taliban have not yet commented on today’s attack in Kandahar, where a car bomb was destroyed in Panjwai district on Tuesday night.
