15 killed as blasts hit southern Afghanistan


KABUL: At least 15 persons were killed including six members of the country’s security services in a wave of bombings in southern Afghanistan, officials said.

“There were four bombings. All of them took place late on Friday in different locations in Helmand,” Omar Zwak, a spokesman for the governor of Helmand province, said.

Zwak said the most deadly of the attacks was when five members of the Afghan intelligence service and a policeman were killed when their vehicle hit a roadside bomb in the Sangin district. The deputy head of Sangin’s intelligence service was among those killed in the explosion, he said.

Helmand police spokesman Shamim Noorzia said the other three bombings killed six civilians and two police officers.
