Kabul: An Afghan police chief says two
separate roadside bomb attacks have killed four private
security guards escorting supply convoys travelling to a NATO
base in eastern Afghanistan.

Provincial police chief Mohammed Hussain said the
attacks took place early today morning in Ghazni province.
Hussain says those killed were Afghans working for security
contractors.

The two bombings happened within two hours of each
other. Poland operates a NATO base in Ghazni.

Insurgent attacks have increased in recent weeks as
the Taliban has begun its spring offensive.
