Suicide car bomber kills 5 in southern Afghanistan
Kabul: Authorities say five civilians have been killed and 36 wounded in a suicide car bomb attack on an Afghan army vehicle in southern Afghanistan.
Local government spokesman Dawkhan Menapal says four Afghan army soldiers also were wounded in the attack Sunday in the Maywand district of Kandahar province.
No one immediately claimed responsibility for the attack but Afghan security forces are frequently targeted by insurgents. Violence has intensified in the country as most international troops prepare to withdraw at the end of the year.
