Afghan police chief survives assassination bid Bookmark and Share

From CNN the latest on this morning’s suicide bombs in the Police Station in Kandahar. Ramadan Day 7.
The Taliban claimed responsibility for a dual suicide attack on Sunday that targeted an Afghan border police commander.

The commander, Abdul Razaaq Khan, survived the attack in the southern Afghan city of Kandahar but sustained injuries, according to the regional police chief.
The attack killed two policemen and wounded 29 others -- including several civilians -- provincial police chief Matiullah Khan said.
But Ahmad Wali Karzai, the head of the provincial council in Kandahar and the younger brother of Afghan President Hamid Karzai, said the bombing killed eight people -- including six policemen -- and wounded 23 others.
Speaking from an undisclosed location by telephone, Taliban spokesman Qari Mohammad Yousif Ahmadi said two militants from the militant group -- Abdul Matin from Kandahar province and Mohammad Wali from Zabul province -- carried out the suicide attacks.
