Four killed in Afghanistan bomb explosion

A bomb exploded in one of the biggest Afghan cities of Kandahar on Monday, killing four people and wounding three others, officials said.

The bomb was hidden outside the home of a former militia commander who was allied to the U.S.-backed Northern Alliance, which swept the Taliban from power in late 2001, said deputy police chief Abdul Hakim Hungar.

The blast killed the former commander, Agha Shah, a supporter of President Hamid Karzai, as well as three other civilian passers-by, he said. The three injured were rushed to hospital.

He said it was not immediately clear if the blast was because of a personal dispute or was an attack by Taliban rebels.

The bombing came a day after a suicide attack in the city injured four British government officials.

Insurgents have stepped up attacks against people allied to Karzai's U.S.-backed government, as well as international security forces here, leaving more than 1,300 dead in the past half year, reports the AP.

An avid reader of mine, he 'had something urgent to tell me', after finding out that our paths were going to be crossing in this destroyed and hopelessly polluted Indonesian capital.
