Fighting breaks out in southern Afghan city
Kandahar: A security official says a gunbattle has broken out between militants wearing suicide vests and security forces in a major city in southern Afghanistan.
An official with the counterterrorism department says security forces have trapped five militants on top of a building that is under construction in Lashkar Gah, capital of Helmand province.
Almas, who like many Afghans goes by one name, says two people have been killed, including one of the attackers and a civilian who was passing by when Friday`s fighting began.
But deputy provincial police chief Kamal Uddin says there were no casualties.
The conflicting reports could not immediately be reconciled.
