Kandahar: Officials say a suicide car bomber has killed at least three people and wounded 15 in southern Afghanistan.

Police say the bomber detonated his explosives-packed vehicle near a hotel in Kandahar, the main city in the province of the same name.

Hospital official Mohammad Ibrahim says the three killed included a child.

The bombing comes as NATO and Afghan forces are preparing for a joint offensive against Taliban militants in the neighbouring province of Helmand.
