Kabul: A suicide-bomber in southern Afghanistan blew himself up while putting on a vest of explosives, an official said.
The explosion occurred in a house in Gereshk town in Helmand province on Wednesday night. "The blast also wounded a child," a spokesperson for the local administration said.
Helmand is known to be a major Taliban stronghold and much of the fighting between NATO and Taliban forces is taking place in the province.
